Tutored Tasting, Specials and more at Avontuur Estate

4 June 2019  -  Avontuur Estate

In June South Africa celebrates one of our most popular varietals, and one for which Avontuur has also won many awards for over the years – Shiraz!

Join us this month as we highlight our Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve in a few educational and fun ways. Keep your eyes peeled on our social media platforms for the launch of our brand-new Wine and Biltong pairing in the tasting room later this month.

Tutored Tasting shows off Shiraz
Winemaker Jan van Rooyen is planning a vertical tasting of Shiraz wines from 2008 till now, including many award-winning wines, which have been kept in the vinoteque under optimum ageing conditions!

Date: Saturday, 15/6 from 10h30-12h30.
Cost: R150 per person. (Includes welcome drink, tutored tasting and shared charcuterie platter).

Seats limited and bookings are essential at Winery Email or +27218553450.

Tasting room Specials
With Winter in full swing, Father’s Day on Sunday 16 June and Shiraz and Venison week from 10-16 June, we thought red wine specials for June would be perfect! Treat Dad to a wonderful Merlot Magnum for only R280 per bottle this month instead of R350 or go full-out with a 3-pack of Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve 2014 at R600 only, instead of the usual price of R720. If you cannot get to the tasting room to benefit from the specials, contact Ella and her team in the tasting room at and place an order. Delivery will then be arranged.

Meet us at Wade Bales KZN
Plan your diary now to join Nick Robb at the KZN edition of the Wade Bales Fine Wine and Whisky affair on Thursday, 13 June and Friday 14 June in Durban! Tickets are limited for this exclusive event and can be purchased at We look forward to sharing some of our new releases, award-winning wines, and our pot-stilled brandy with you!

After the excitement of the annual yearling sales, the team at the thoroughbred stud farm are hunkering down for winter, although we’re loving the wins every weekend by progeny of our two stallions Var and Oratorio! Miss Frankel is keeping fit and on top of her game with regular exercise sessions under the watchful eyes of trainer Dennis Drier, and we hope to get her to race again some time this month.
