Avontuur consists of 60 ha vineyards and produces approximately 350 tons of  grapes annually. Wine maker Jan van Rooyen was appointed on 1 January 2011.

The Reds are: Cabernet Sauvignon & Franc, Merlot, Pinotage, Pinot Noir, Petit Verdot and Shiraz.
The Whites are: Chardonnay, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc.

Avontuur produces two ranges of wines and a few speciality products.

The Premier Range of wines bears testimony to some of the finest horses to have passed through the farm. Baccarat (Bordeaux blend), Luna de Miel (Chardonnay Reserve), Sarabande (Sauvignon Blanc Reserve), Dominion Royale (Shiraz Reserve), Minelli (Pinot Noir Reserve) and Above Royalty Liqueur Wine live on in the wonderful wines which are nurtured in our cellars.

The Estate range includes Pinot Noir/Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet/Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pinotage. 

Avontuur also produces a 10-year old pot-stilled Brandy which is exquisitely packaged and perfect as a gift. The range is rounded off with a limited quantity of hand-crafted Methode Cap Classique Sparkling wine.
