Wine tasting at L'avenir

L'avenir was a lovely place to spend a warm winter afternoon. We took our time and tasted a wide variety of their fantastic wines. The staff were friendly and helpful. A must try.

Well last year, to much fanfare, they opened the Pinotage room. Well Pinotage is a favorite of ours, so one of the stops I have been looking forward to is the new Pinotage lounge. We did get to taste, but were just told with no explanation, sorry its closed. Not exactly customer centrc.

L'avenir has the whole package. A beautiful outdoor setting, with tables on the lawn. Enjoy a value for money picnic basket by the dam and try your hand at fishing. Or the cheese, meat and preserves platter is delicious and VERY good value for money, compared to what other wine farms offer. Or just simply enjoy a cheese platter with... More

Lovely surroundings to enjoy a wine tasting - would recommend trying their bubbly. Staff were a bit slow, and not as proactive as some of the other estates we visited, but didn't detract too much from an enjoyable experience. We enjoyed it so much, we stayed for lunch. Service a bit slow here too, but hey, there's no rush in... More

Visiting as a result of a trail run hosted on the farm, beautiful surroundings and a gorgeous setting. A stunning reception room, with available couches outside to enjoy a wine-tasting and cheese platter or a light snack that is available. I did however find the staff a little frosty. I give this due to having just had a trail run... More
