⁕ Avondale Wine Estate (Paarl) Open Gardens

Open: Saturday 21 – Sunday 22 October 2023

Details from 2021:

After the abundant winter rains, the Avondale Wine Estate organic gardens are looking beautiful, too beautiful not to share, to share with anyone who loves open spaces and enjoys the pleasures of a magnificent spring garden.

Avondale Wine Estate is situated outside Paarl on the slopes of the Klein Drakenstein mountains. It has magnificent views of the Simonsberg, Paarl Rock, the Klein Drakenstein Mountains and, in the far distance, Table Mountain.

In addition to viewing the gardens, you will also be able to view the majestic private garden of Ginny Grieve as well as six other private gardens on the estate. Experience Avondale’s historic Cape Dutch buildings; view many mature trees; walk through the working vegetable garden that supplies the award-winning restaurant, FABER; stroll over the meandering streams; experience the indigenous beds, rose gardens and meadow, and watch the stately cows, working ducks and chickens in their free-range environment.

Finish your walk with a tasting of the organic and biodynamic wines at the Avondale Wine Cellar or book a meal at our restaurant, which has recently been awarded by Haute Grandeur Global Excellence Awards as the Best Garden Restaurant in Africa.

Time: 10:00 – 16:00
