Here you can find our range of premium quality Jonty’s Ducks wines made exclusively on Avondale’s eco-friendly estate in the picturesque Paarl region of the Cape Winelands located in South Africa.
Avondale Wines is a family owned farm run by proprietor, Johnathan Grieve, who is sometimes also known as ‘Jonty’. This exclusive range of exciting wines celebrates our natural vineyard eco-system where a posse of glossy Pekin ducks patrols our vineyards to find and eat snails which would otherwise cause serious damage to our vines.
