Avondale Wine Estate Open Gardens 2022

Saturday 22 – Sunday 23 October

Situated outside Paarl on the slopes of the Klein Drakenstein mountains, this garden has magnificent views of the Simonsberg, Paarl Rock, the Klein Drakenstein Mountains, and in the far distance, Table Mountain. There are seven beautiful spring organic gardens on the estate including cellar gardens, some private gardens, and two working vegetable gardens. Stroll over the meandering streams, experience the indigenous beds, rose gardens and meadows, and watch the stately cows, working ducks and chickens in their free-range environment.
