Diarise the 8.2.2017 for our first Business Breakfast Club of 2017 at Avontuur. 

‘What is ‘The Blockchain’ and what it means to you as an entrepreneur’

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is characterised by a fusion of technologies that are blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. These developments will inevitably result in a lot of automation and job losses. James aims to educate people on new technologies such as Bitcoin and Blockchain and to help them understand what they can do to prepare for these changes that will be affecting us all.


James’ passion for education and technology has led him and his team to start Leaderless – a disruptive education platform aimed at putting the power back into the hands of South Africans. James is the Chief Disruptor at Leaderless and his greatest goal and biggest concern is to ensure that there is a balance between the digital world and the environment we live in.

Two festive desserts to wow your guests from Avontuur Restaurant!

Your friends at Avontuur Estate Restaurant would like to wish you a happy and joy filled holiday season.

To add to the festive spirit we would love to share two of our most popular dessert recipes with you. Our ever popular white chocolate panacotta with a mixed berry and bay leaf compote and our ultimate meringues. Two flop proof recipes to enjoy with your loved ones throughout the year!

After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relatives. -Oscar Wilde

Find recipes here:


Creamy, dreamy and certainly decadent, our white chocolate panacotta is one of those staples you  should have in your entertaining repertoire. Serve it with a fruit coulis or as we have done , a mixed berry and bay leaf compote. You will be so glad  you tried it (and so will your family!)


Nothing says summer, quite like a feather light, melt in the mouth meringue. Serve it with lemon curd and cream or just a huge blob of ice cream and strawberries. It’s a win win for everyone!

Happy Holidays everyone!!

Deutsche Gäste lieben Avontuur.

Hier ist eine Bewertung von zwei Gästen auf TRIPADVISOR:

Wir sind bereits das 5. Mal in Südafrika und immer wieder gern hier gewesen. Schon der Weg, der auf das Weingut führt, ist eine Augenweide, rechts und links flankiert von weißen Rosenbüschen. Gepflegte Pferde grasen hinter weißen Weidezäunen und vom Restaurant hat man einen atemberaubenden Blick auf die reizvolle Umgebung. Jedes Mal essen wir hier unser Lieblingsgericht: Geröstete Ente mit Orangensoße… sowas von lecker! Man bekommt 2 knusprige Entenkeulen, sorgsam garniert (inkl. Pommes) und zahlt am Ende pro Gericht etwa 10-15 € (QR=nach Gewicht). Hmmm.

Wir sind sieben Tage die Woche geöffnet, und wir servieren Abendessen 
jeden Mittwoch bis Samstag.
Wir freuen uns auf Sie bei Avontuur.

Instagram South Africa comes to Avontuur for an Instawalk!

We were blessed with awesome weather on our first Instawalk in partnership with Instagram South Africa on the 30.10.2016

Bloggers, photographers, foodies, and all other interesting people were invited to join us on a gentle walk around the estate.

We started off in true Avontuur style with bubbles on the patio and once everyone had arrived we made our way down to the paddocks where we were hoping to see some of the babies!

Blogging for Business- 10 things you can do RIGHT NOW to leverage your website.

Blogging for Business – 10 Things you can do Right Now to leverage your website as a marketing tool.
It will be a practical talk (do this, click here, install this etc.) with the reasoning and my experience as to how and WHY it works.

Cindy Page; Professional blogger and content marketing consultant at Word of Mouth Cape Town.
Cindi says, ” I launched Word of Mouth Cape Town because I believe the best form of advertising is still one person sharing their experience with another. Not too long ago we called that “word of mouth” and it happened around the braai or in a real face to face context. Now-a-days we still share things by word of mouth, but it happens via online platforms. And if a business wants to be able to take advantage of modern day word of mouth advertising they have to invest on their online presence and give their audience something to share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. That’s where the value of content and your business blog comes into play.”

What is content marketing?
In a nutshell, content marketing is about utilising the internet’s most valuable commodity to promote your business, namely: information. The more information your provide about your business online, the more credibility you gain with any prospects you may be interested in what you have to offer. And best way to get the information about your concern out there is by having a website with an effective blog providing valuable content and integrating that with the relevant social media platforms to reach as many people as possible.
Does your business have a website with an active blog? Can it improve? Is it giving you exposure? Is it bringing you potential business?
Using your blog as a content marketing strategy is the answer to achieving results in all of the above. Want to find out how to get started?
Join me at Avontuur’s November Breakfast Club where I will be giving away practical tips on how you can get more exposure for your business by leveraging your existing website.
