Wine and Biltong Winter Pairing.

If you’ve more of a sweet tooth, you can enjoy our wine, nougat and fudge pairing, which is continuing alongside the biltong pairing.

Avontuur Estate - Home of Fine Wines, Fast Horses and Gorgeous Food
As you arrive at this family-owned winery and thoroughbred stud farm set against the Helderberg in the quality wine growing area of Stellenbosch, the first things which catch your eye is the view towards False Bay and the green paddocks with their white fencing, filled with elegant race horses.

Visitors love sitting out on the terrace for a wine tasting or lunch and are often seen wandering around taking photographs of the views, the horses and the gracious manor house, home of the Taberer Family, who have owned the Estate from the 1980’s.
R50 pp for a choice of 5 wines excluding our 10 year old pot-stilled brandy.
Brandy is available for tasting at an additional R20 or in a chocolate cup for R20

One of the most popular activities at the Tasting Room is the speciality tastings which offer a pairing of wine with treats like chocolate, biltong or macaroons. These change regularly but the current pairing of hand-crafted artisanal confectionary from local supplier Basilei with five of Avontuur’s wines, is a hit! The pairing takes about 30 minutes and costs R80 pp.

The pairing sets the mood for a meal in the highly rated Avontuur Estate restaurant, which is usually in the Top 3 on Tripadvisor in the area. Freshly made food using seasonal locally sourced ingredients, generous portions and decadent desserts ensure that once-off visitors often become regulars. The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch daily with dinners on Wednesdays and Fridays, and from Tuesday to Saturday during season.

If you don’t have time for a full meal, order our Cheese or Meat Platter in the tasting room for only R120 each - and enjoy that over a glass of wine inside or outside the tasting room. Visitors love the self-guided Farm Walk, which is combined with a Speciality pairing afterwards for R100 pp.

It’s no wonder that Avontuur Estate is one of the busiest and most popular stops along the busy R44 route between Stellenbosch and Somerset West!
