Avontuur Estate - Wine and Horse Combo!

Avontuur Estate

Dubbed the "Home of Fine Wine and Fast Horses" this is an estate with a twist.

The Stud Farm was established in the late 1980's by Tony Taberer.
Whilst doing the tour around the vineyards, one will come upon a memorial bench to Tony who passed away in 2007. The bench is a fitting reminder of a man who loved golf, cricket, tennis and horses!

Beautiful race horses grace the paddocks whilst the vineyards command stunning views.
Situated in the western slopes of the Helderbeg mountains, the estate producers both fine wines and sires such as Var and Oratorio.

The Manor House is a National Monument and is over 100 years old.
However, this is not open to the public.

The Tasting Room is open is open daily, except for Christmas, New Year and Good Friday.
Cellar tours are available and there is a restaurant onsite.

It's a place that is of interest to both wine lovers and horse lovers.
The Stables are out of bounds though - only those horses in the paddocks are "on show" so to speak.
