Tease Your Taste Buds at Avontuur

Food and wine pairing is controversial topic and an inexact science. Now Avontuur Estate offers the novice and more experienced wine lover the opportunity to find out for themselves which tastes and flavours work best with certain varietals.

On arrival, participants are seated with 5 wines ranging from Fruity and Dry, White and Red  to the Estate’s Potstilled Brandy, set up before them.  In addition, small bowls featuring edibles representing the 5 main flavours ie. Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter and Umami are set out.  Participants taste each wine with each flavour and jot down their comments and scores on a specially provided tasting sheet, which they take home afterwards. In this way, everyone can ascertain for themselves which flavours match optimally.

Avontuur’s trained tasting room staff  provide general food and wine pairing tips and hints throughout the tasting.

The Tease your Taste Buds Tasting is approximately 30 minutes long, is offered daily during usual tasting room hours and can be presented to up to 30 people at a time.  Bookings are essential for groups, but a few minutes of patience on arrival without a booking, will allow personnel to set up the tasting for a couple or a few friends,  while you enjoy the view from the terrace over False Bay.

The cost is R50 pp.

For more information or to book your tasting, contact Nadia or Natalie in the tasting room at winery@avontuurestate.co.za or at (021)855-3450.
