Fine wines, fast horses and a brand new wedding venue and accommodation at Avontuur Estate

3 November 2020  -  Avontuur Estate

“It is hard to believe that it’s almost Christmas again.” There’s a phrase you’ve heard just about every year and yet somehow it becomes a greater reality. Logically, as we get older, 1 year becomes a smaller proportion of our lives, which perhaps psychologically makes each year feels shorter.

It’s November. There is a lot to do. You can still get it done, but do it now or at least start. And while you do enjoy a glass of Avontuur wine and let it remind you that life is an “ADVENTURE” best shared with those you love.

Special Events
In previous newsletters we gave you snippets of what is coming up. Well we are thoroughly excited to be launching our brand new offering of Weddings, Special Events and Accommodation.

Our newly renovated venue spaces, coupled with the ideal location will be available for booking your special event from December 2020. You will want to get in early as bookings are coming in and as a newsletter subscriber you have a great opportunity to do so. We have wonderful packages that will make your dream occasion become a reality.

For bookings/enquiries/information please email or call 021 855 3450.

All That Jazz
In January we consigned an incredible filly out of our beloved mare Val de Ra, sired by Trippi. All that Jazz ended up being the top priced filly on the sale and she is now off to Australia to show the racing world what she’s made of. It’s a huge plus for South Africa and a great step toward building the local industry. We wish her and her owners the very best and look forward to what is to come.

In other news Avontuur bred Tempting Fate, daughter of Miss October, recently won the title of Champion 2 Year Old. She is coming closer to home now along with Pray For Rain – another Dennis Drier trained and Avontuur bred – to be part of the Cape Summer Season, which is rearing to go. Proud as ever of our four-legged friends. Read More… More info on Avontuur Stud and breeding contact 021 855 3450 or

November Wine Specials
The new Avontuur Rosé is receiving a lot of love and attention, as is the Sauvignon Blanc. Before the Summer madness, when the white and rosé wines flow like the Amazon, we thought we would offer great deals on the 2 wines.

3 pack of Rosé 2020 or a 3 pack of Sauvignon Blanc 2020 for R250 (normally R300). Valid November 2020.

Are you looking for the gifts for your loved ones, colleagues, staff members, teachers? Avontuur Tasting Room & Gift Store is the place you need to be. Whether it’s a custom gift hamper, voucher for a dinner or tasting experience or a bottle wine and a scented candle. We have a lovely range of complimentary products for the perfect gift.

There will be some great Gift Specials on offer over the build up to the festive season.

Did someone say wine tasting while gift shopping? HELLO! That’s my kind of gift shopping. And while you’re there, why not have a lunch and a coffee too.
