Avondale Wine Estate

Below the Klein Drakenstein Mountains is an estate which uses a holistic approach to wine-farming known the BioLOGIC® approach which combines organic and biodynamic principles with modern science.

It is said to be one of the first plots of land to be set aside for wine grape production. 1999 saw the first Avondale vintage produced by the Grieve family.

After a huge fire in 2000, Jonathan Grieve developed the BioLOGIC® approach which sort to develop great wines in a healthy, balance environment. Terre est Vita’ is their ethos and it means ‘soil is life’.

Tastings at Avondale are free and include their seven classic wines which go by the name of the ‘Avondale Magnificent Collection’. The Eco Tour is a unique experience not to miss out on. You’ll start off with the Methode Cap Classique in the Tasting Gallery, move onto a vineyard tour and see how they farm in harmony with Nature and sample wine in the vineyard block where the grapes are grown. Three storeys undergournd in a dry river bed, the tour will take you to the gravity flow cellar built in 2003 and finally you’ll return to the Tasting Gallery where you can enjoy the spectacular view or artwork on exhibition.
