Not only will Cabernet Franc fans be spoilt for choice in the wine stakes when attending the first-ever Cabernet Franc Carnival at Avontuur Estate on 20 June, the rest of the entertainment will not lag behind.


As this varietal is a food wine par excellence, the Avontuur Restaurant is offering their special Oxtail (R130) and 300g matured Prime Rib (R150), both paired with a glass of the Estate’s award-winning Cabernet Franc. Reservations for breakfast and lunch are essential at or +27.218554296.


If your taste leans more towards the casual, Ishushu Pizzas is on hand with their food truck and a selection of gourmet pizzas and to end off Wicked Waffle will make sure those with a sweet tooth don’t miss out.


Live music will be provided by Palm Strings, whose violin and guitar genre is great as background to this exclusive tasting event.
