What’s On

Merlot Magnum special perfect for Father’s Day

Although our Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve special will attract lots of attention this month, we’re offering a very special once-off offer as well, which will be perfect for Dad’s on Father’s Day.

So you can treat Dad (and the whole family) to a breakfast or lunch on Father’s Day in the restaurant (due to the popularity of the Restaurant, make sure you book in time on openhand@polka.co.za or by phoning +27 21 855-4296) and then surprise him with one of our newly released Merlot Magnums 2016 at only R280 each, instead of the usual R350 per bottle.

We don’t usually produce a single varietal Merlot and this special edition was only made due to the quality of the Merlot on offer,, which gave winemaker Jan van Rooyen the idea to produce a small run of this exclusively.

The Merlot Magnum is on special till month-end June or while stocks last and it’s a great gift for any red wine lover or that special man in your life!


Cab Franc on special this month.

Linking into the general celebrations around the Cabernet Franc varietal at Avontuur this month,  we’re offering a 2-pack of our award-winning Cabernet Franc 2014 for only R300 from the tasting room only!  The usual price is R360. 

This is the perfect opportunity to try out this niche varietal which seems to be taking off in South Africa.  If you’re already a Cab Franc fan,  go a step further and grab a bottle or two of the Baccarat 2012 too as this flagship blend of ours is also Cab Franc driven, albeit quite a bit older, which gives  a truly smooth tasting experience.  

The tasting room is open daily – even on voting day this coming Wednesday! We hope to see you soon.


Rose Magnum for sale for Mother’s Day

We’re celebrating Mother’s Day this weekend with a unique release,  a “special label” Rose  called The Pink Flamingo.  It’s not available on the farm usually and we’ve taken a few bottles out of the warehouse to spoil our regulars for a change!

So treat yourself and your family to one – or more – of these 1.5 litres of stunning Rose at only R130 per Magnum.  You won’t be sorry!  Only from the tasting room at the Estate.  Available till Mother’s Day – Sunday 12 May.

Easter Weekend Opening Times

Join us this Easter weekend for a wine tasting, a relaxed farm walk, breakfast, lunch or dinner in the restaurant, or just a cheese or meat platter outside on the terrace!

We’re open throughout the weekend except on Good Friday – we’d love to see you any other day!  Wishing all our clients and supporters a blessed Easter.


Easter, Chocolates and Shiraz go together.

With Easter coming up soon,  our thoughts are turning towards Hot Cross Buns, a lovely long weekend,  family time and obviously CHOCOLATES!

Thinking about which of our wines pair best with chocolate,  we have to say the Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve 2014 is the overall choice – and we are inviting you to try our monthly special of a 2-pack of this wine for only R400 (You save R80!).  Not only is it great with dark chocolate, it’s also a perfect pairing  with that Easter Sunday lamb roast or any rich red meat.

Give it a try this Easter, we guarantee a mouth-watering experience.

OPENING TIMES:  We are open right through all the public holidays coming up EXCEPT Good Friday. 


Newly-released Pinotage on special in March

Winemaker Jan van Rooyen believes that the newly-released single vineyard Pinotage 2017 is meant to age and for that reason we’re offering a 6-bottle box of this wine at R990 instead of the usual R1110.

“Buy the wine now, drink a bottle or two, keep the rest to enjoy at two year intervals and see how the wine progresses,” he explains.

The new Pinotage is available for tasting and sale at our tasting room and this special offer is only valid if bought directly from the farm from 1 March to 31 March.


New Pinotage released – taste it now!

We’re absolutely thrilled to present our 2017 Pinotage to fans around the country, especially as it is the first vintage from our newly classified single vineyard.  Winemaker Jan van Rooyen really enjoyed working with these new grapes which are disease-free and perfectly suited for the terroir and micro-climate. 


The wine is available for tasting in our tasting room and for sale at R185 per bottle.


Make a point of popping in to try it now!

New Year’s wishes from Avontuur!

With 2019 now literally a few hours away,  we’d like to wish all our supporters a wonderful and successful new year.  May your horses win and your Avontuur wine collection grow steadily in the new year.  

We hope you will be celebrating the end of 2018 and the kick-off to the new year with some of Avontuur’s award-winning MCC Rose, still available today from the tasting room!

Avontuur Estate will be closed tomorrow on new year’s day but from the 2nd we’re open and looking forward to seeing you soon.


Drive safely and have a fantastic New Year!

Cab Franc Special on this whole month!

A few years ago Dracaena Wines in the US started a new initiative which is now featuring on the official wine calender as  #InternationalCabFrancDay.  It takes place on 4 December annually and as we are huge fans of this varietal,  Avontuur is right up there celebrating with the rest of the world.

But we’re not sticking to one day only – we’re offering our 2014 Cabernet Franc as a two-pack for only R320.  (Usual price: R370).

So don’t miss out on the hype this month – a few bottles of award-winning wine will suit an extravagant Christmas Day braai, or some exotic smoked meat platters or even that oven-roasted leg of lamb to a tee.
