Art & Equus Exhibition

In The Eye Of The Beholder

Internationally renowned as the home of fine wines and fast horses, and a landmark on the R44 that connects the historic towns of Stellenbosch and Somerset West, the magnificent Avontuur Estate will host an extraordinarily unique ‘Art & Equus Exhibition’ from 12 January to 13 February 2022.

The time-honoured vineyards of Avontuur Estate have been producing quality wine grapes for over a century and their world-class range of award-winning wines and champion racehorses proudly carry the flag of a destination that is spoken of  with admiration across the globe.

The ‘Art & Equus Exhibition’ will play host to fine art, illustrated works, photography and sculpture, in a celebration of the beauty and majesty of a beloved animal that has enthralled millions, inspired best sellers, changed lives and won wars.

Participating artists include Riaan Van Zyl, Tarryn Stebbing and Robin Kutinyu, while the internationally acclaimed racing photographer Liesl King, Equus Champion photographer Candiese Lenferna and local lensman Chase Liebenberg, will showcase their individual thoroughbred trademark in what will be a feast for the eyes, heart and soul. 

The trademark Avontuur blend of horses and wines will be celebrated in unison of fine wine and fabulous food in the intimate gallery space in the recently refurbished Barrel Cellar Venue at Avontuur Wine Estate, where a spectacular range of equestrian art will be showcased.

Please join us on this journey into the creative world of equine artistry, where reality and love coalesce in a blaze of fantasy, and where the mind is your only boundary!

We are open daily for wine tasting and a delicious meal, or even consider spoiling yourself with an overnight stay at the Avontuur Manor House.

The ‘Art & Equus Exhibition’ will be open daily from 12 January to 13 February 2022.
