Avontuur Estate is a boutique winery and thoroughbred stud farm. The Estate boasts a modern tasting room where tastings of all Avontuur wines are conducted daily as well as a restaurant offering a mediterranean-inspired a-la-carte menu with daily and seasonal specials. Patrons are welcome to sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the view over False Bay or in Winter, inside, in front of the fireplace.
Our restaurant is open daily for breakfast and lunch and for dinner on Wednesday and Fridays.
The tasting room is open daily. 09h00-17h00 Mon-Sat and 09h00-16h00 on Sundays.
Avontuur Wine and Thoroughbred Estate is situated on the southwestern slopes of the Helderberg on the R44 road which connects Somerset West and Stellenbosch.
The vineyards are planted with 65% red varietals and 35% white varietals. The Reds are: Cabernet Sauvignon & Franc, Merlot, Pinotage, Pinot Noir, Petit Verdot and Shiraz. The Whites are: Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc.
The estate is owned by the Taberer family since 1984.
Avontuur also produces a 10-year old and our Above Royalty Liqueur wine, both of which are exquisitely packaged and perfect as a gift idea. Last but not least, we have a stunningly aged Methode Cap Classique Brut, which is only available from the Estate Tasting Room.
