This is a Vine yard and a Race Horse stud with a Restaurant. The menu is very extensive and excellent value together with great wines.

We visited a few wine farms in the Cape area and Avontuur was certainly one of the best ones we visited. Good weather and good food eating outside always very romantic.

Beautiful weather, beautiful view, fantastic company. The roast duckling was superb, described as crispy on the outside and succulent inside. That is exactly what I got. Good service to go with a great venue and food.
