The Home of Fine Wine and Fast Horses.
Avontuur is a well known wine estate situated in-between Somerset West and Stellenbosch. The farm covers some prime Winelands real estate and boasts incredible views spanning over False Bay across to Table Mountain.
Recent renovations of the iconic Old Cape Dutch Manor House has resulted in a world class accommodation offering that also lends itself to one of the most beautiful wedding settings in the region. The rolling lawns of the Manor House are cradled by magnificent gardens amongst the tranquil horse paddocks, where some of South Africa’s highest rated thoroughbred race horses have now retired to breed.
The stylishly upgraded barrel cellar venue maintains its rustic authenticity, yet has a modern charm. It is an ideal wedding reception venue that can seat up to 140 guests and includes a separate bar area as well as an outside terrace with all the breathtaking views you could hope for.
The multiple award winning restaurant caters the most delicious and generous food for all occasions and adapts well to any special requests that our guests require.
Avontuur Wines speak for themselves and as winemaker Jan Van Rooyen says, “we are blessed with some of the best terroir on the Western Slopes of the Helderberg”. Our Brut MCC makes any wedding stress quickly fizz away.
