It's spring time at Avontuur
The start of Spring is always heralded by the arrival of bouncy babies who entertain us all! Here are a few of the new arrivals taking their first steps in the paddocks. Visit our website to see more.

Miss Frankel shows her speed
After doing quite a bit of growing up since her debut at the start of the year, Miss Frankel showed her class on 23 August when she won the 1000m at Scottsville decisively, with top jock Anton Marcus steering. She’s now back at the Drier stable and will be visiting the Cape for the summer season, where we hope to see her in action at Kenilworth. Visit our website to watch the video’s of the race.

New Luna de Miel released
The release of the new Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve is always an occasion and it’s no less true this time, with the 2016 vintage flying out of the tasting room! Cost: R146 per bottle. Pairs perfectly with lightly spiced, creamy dishes.

Long weekend opening times
The Restaurant and Tasting Room is open over the Heritage Day long weekend from 22/9-25/9. We look forward to hosting you then!

Tutored tasting: music & wine
What impact does music have on your experience of a wine? Do your taste buds react to music? These and other questions will be answered by winemaker Jan van Rooyen at the last of our seasonal tutored tastings on Saturday, 16 September from 11h00-12h30. The cost is R100 pp (Includes welcome drink, tasting and light lunch).

Tasting room special
With Spring upon us, what can be more fitting than a glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc? We’ve got our popular Sauvie on special this month for only R180 for a 3-pack instead of the usual price of R204. If you can’t get to the tasting room this month, you can email us to place and order too. Orders, bookings and pre-payments: winery@avontuurestate.co.za or +27.218553450.

Breakfast club
Wed, 13/9: “WAKING UP”. 7 Years in a coma. Dr Kobus Du Toit’s story of waking up and uncovering the significance of his story. 08h30. R150 pp. Bring along a guest who’s never attended, and only pay for one.

Spring day freebie!
We’ll treat you to a free drink with breakfast or lunch on 1/9! Book now. T’s and C’s apply.

Dinner at Avontuur
Join us for an Early Bird Dinner from 5-7 pm on Wednesdays and Fridays or book for a-la carte afterwards.
