About Aventine Wines
Our winemaking style is traditional, using indigenous yeasts, and minimal interference. Apart from traditional styles, we also make non-traditional, non-commercial wine styles. These are enjoyed by many people, especially those who enjoy something special.
Our gardens are very much a work in progress. It has been more than challenging to attempt to establish gardens during a drought which has lasted 3 years.
We commenced by retrieving old farm equipment from the far reaches of our farm. Most of this equipment comprised horse drawn ploughs, wagons, carts, and sulkies. These items had simply been abandoned down through the years as they were superseded by new technology such as tractors, trucks and cars.
Many of these items are now located in our gardens. An excellent example of a sulky in original condition with fancy hand painted decorations takes pride of place inside our cellar door.
We are open for wine tastings and sales: –
9:00am to 5:00pm daily
We enjoy spending time with our visitors. This can be a little challenging when we have 50 people in our cellar door. This usually happens when 2 or more tour groups arrive simultaneously. Please telephone us beforehand wherever possible , if you are part of a group of 10 or more. We will do our best to arrange a mutually convenient time for your visit, so as to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.
We look forward to welcoming you to Aventine Wines.
