Avontuur Estate
As part of the annual Shiraz Week celebrations from 10-16 June, Avontuur is joining in the fun with a tutored tasting planned for Saturday 15 June which will highlight the different styles and ageability of Avontuur’s Shiraz wines from 2008 till now.

This is an opportunity for Shiraz lovers to interact with a Avontuur’s winemaker Jan van Rooyen, and learn more about the intricacies of this hugely popular red wine varietal in South Africa and world-wide.

Guests will arrive from 10h30 on Saturday morning and will receive a welcome drink after which the tutored tasting will be presented, filled with interesting titbits and information. After the tasting, guests will enjoy a charcuterie platter and have time to chat to fellow Shiraz fans and Jan himself, who is always willing to share more info if visitors are keen!

Each tasting is limited to 20 participants and includes a welcome drink, the tasting and a shared Charcuterie platter for only R150 per person. Bookings are essential and can be made in the tasting room with Ella or Moerieda, by phoning the Estate at +27.218553450 or by emailing winery@avontuurestate.co.za.

Avontuur’s tasting room is offering a special 3-pack of the Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve 2014 at R600, instead of the usual R720, so if you can’t get to the farm on the 15th, feel free to order it via email or come in on another day this month to grab a few bottles to enjoy at home.
