Your tour begins with a glass of Avondale’s Méthode Cap Classique while your knowledgeable guide gives a brief overview of the farm, after which you’ll either be driven through the vineyards where several pioneering farming techniques are demonstrated. Avondale Farm’s “Terre est Vita” (soil is life) ethos is embodied in all the farm’s unique practices, such as the snail-patrolling and pest-averting ducks! While in the vineyard blocks, you will have an opportunity to taste the wines from where they were picked.
After returning from the vineyards, you’ll be taken on a short tour of the state-of-the-art gravity-flow cellar, which is three storeys underground in the cool depths of a natural dry river bed. Or you might start with the cellar tour and then go on a tour of the vineyard. The tour concludes in the Tasting Gallery where you can relax and enjoy the view, or browse the latest artworks on exhibition.
