Extraordinary Wine approved by Mother Nature

Premium Quality Wines– their  commitment to promoting life does not only lead to Mother Nature’s approval of our healthy, balanced vineyard ecosystem; it also ensures the premium quality of Avondale’s unique, naturally-made, slow wines. The vigour of their well-tended vines leads to excellent grapes bursting with fresh flavours that are evident in their individually-styled, classic wines, so full of life and character.

Certified Organic

Avondale is certified organic and they practice bio-dynamic agriculture; but they go beyond both these beneficial systems of natural farming by also using the best 21st Century science, technology and knowledge to enhance sustainability.

When they despatch Avondale wines for worldwide distribution in select markets, they hold the intention that we will play a role in enhancing healthy balance and affirming joy in the lives of those that take pleasure in them. They are mindful that whenever an Avondale wine is part of a family dinner or a celebration; an exciting gathering or a solitary interlude we are all connected in those moments by a shared love of life.
