If you enjoy exploring the winelands and wine-making, Avondale offers you a truly unique experience. Our Eco Wine Safaris take you on a wonderful journey throughout our beautiful and bountiful farm. Highly specialised and informative, the Eco Wine Safari highlights the remarkable ways that Avondale produces extraordinary wines approved by Mother Nature.
The Eco Wine Safari starts with a welcome at our Tasting Gallery where you can enjoy a glass of Avondale’s gorgeous Methode Cap Classique. Guests are then taken on a vineyard tour where you can witness and learn more about our unique and pioneering ways of farming in harmony with Nature. Here, you will see how we put our ethos ‘Terra Est Vita’ – soil is life into practice. Against the picturesque backdrop of the Klein Drakenstein mountains, you can enjoy further tastings of our other hand-crafted, classic wines right in the particular vineyard blocks where the grapes were grown.
Eco Wine Safaris include a visit to our state-of-the-art gravity flow cellar, constructed three storeys underground in the cool depths of a natural dry river bed. The journey concludes with a return to the Tasting Gallery where you can relax and enjoy the view, or browse the latest artworks on exhibition.
We cater for each Safari individually, and to ensure that you get the best of the Avondale Experience, all Eco Wine Safaris are by appointment only.

The image associated with Camissa is a rendition of the fountain sculpture in the middle of the Dolphin Pool at the Castle of Good Hope. In the late 1790s, Lady Anne Barnard made sketches and descriptions of the original Dolphin Pool. These were used in 1982 to reconstruct the beautiful fountain that once fl owed with the sweet waters of Table Mountain.
