AVONTUUR: Wine Sales - online and at the Estate - now open!


5 June 2020  -  Avontuur Wine Estate

It's slowly moving towards "business as usual" at Avontuur! The yearlings are being prepared for the Bloodstock South Africa National Yearling Sale, our Tasting Room is open for wine sales during the prescribed days & keeping in mind the safety issues for staff and visitors - and the Avontuur Estate Restaurant is keeping foodies happy with their weekend "takeaway" meals!

We’ve had a rip-roaring online wine trade over the lock down period and we are incredibly grateful to all our fans who’ve supported us.

By this time, most of you would have received your wine and we wish you happy sipping. Our Estate Tasting Room is open for wine sales (no tastings) from Monday-Thursday, 09h00-17h00, whilst the on-line shop at shop.avontuurestate.co.za is still buzzing with orders.

Both platforms now offer clients a 20% discounted rate on all wine and brandy – and you are automatically entered into our lucky draw to win a hamper worth R1500!

Baccarat 2014 Released

The release of a new vintage of our flagship Red, the Baccarat is always an occasion and we are already seeing much interest from online and
Estate consumers who’re keen to stock up. It’s a serious Bordeaux-style blend, which is meant to impress and has substantial ageing potential. Make a point of getting a case - drink one now and keep the rest!

Father's Day Delights

We all love treating Dad and this month the 20% discount on all wines in our tasting room gives you a rare chance to spoil him properly. Our Merlot Magnum, is just perfect for that
Father’s Day celebration – now or after lock down. It’s casual enough to be served with a braai or with a more substantial Sunday roast and will be a winner for most palates. Contact winery@avontuurestate.co.za to arrange for delivery if you can’t get to Avontuur Estate this month.

Weekend Pick-up Menu's A Huge Success

Locals from Stellenbosch, Somerset West and even further afield are keen supporters of the Saturday and Sunday pick-up menu’s which bring the delights of the Avontuur Restaurant into your own home. Each dish serves four and ranges from lighter options like quiche and salmon roses to whole roast duck and perfectly cooked fillet steak. And don’t forget the desserts!

Follow us on facebook at www.facebook.com AvontuurRestaurant/ to see each weekend’s options.

Gift Vouchers Great for Future Enjoyment

The Avontuur Restaurant is not open for on-site dining at the moment, but many regulars are planning for future fun by purchasing gift vouchers to use until 30 April 2021 – it such a treat to look forward to.

National Yearling Sale Will Be Unique This Year

As the country slowly creeps out of lock down, at Avontuur we’ve been busy keeping the stud farm, vineyards and cellar in tip top condition whilst keeping the health and safety issues for our staff always in mind. The stud team have been preparing the 13 Yearlings for the National Yearling Sale, which will take place later in July, either via an on-line auction or if possible live – as always!
We have the pedigrees and photographs of the Yearlings on our Stud pages as well as some additional comments and info about each one. Visit our website to read more
