Avontuur Wine is situated on the southwestern slopes of the Helderberg between Somerset West and Stellenbosch. The estate boasts a cosy tasting room where tastings of all Avontuur wines are conducted daily as well as a mediterranean-inspired restaurant. Patrons are welcome to sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the view over False Bay or in cooler days, inside, in front of the fireplace. Avontuur consists of 100 ha vineyards and produces approximately 450 tons of grapes annually. Lying restfully amongst the vines on the estate is the beautiful Avontuur Stud Farm where the emphasis has always been on quality rather than quantity. In fact Avontuur's premier range of wines bears testimony to four of the finest horses to have passed through the farm. Baccarat (Bordeaux blend), Luna de Miel (Chardonnay Reserve), Sarabande (Sauvignon Blanc Reserve), Above Royalty (Noble Late Harvest) and Minelli (Pinot Noir Reserve) live on in the wonderful wines which are nurtured in the cellars. A nice escape!

Did You Know...? Avontuur also produces a 10-year old and a non-vintage potstilled Brandy
