Avontuur Estate celebrates Woman's Month, Tutored Tasting and more this August


5 August 2019  -  Avontuur Estate

Every August we celebrate “woman power” at Avontuur with many activities planned to highlight the ladies in our lives. So, if you have someone special in your life, this is your chance to spoil her.

In keeping with the female theme of the month, August started off with the birth of a healthy filly by Master of my Fate out of Jackie O, which indicates the start of the breeding season is truly here.

Lyle off to Honk Kong in mid August
