L’Avenir Launches a Cutting Edge Conferencing Centre in the Winelands
With an eye on the future, as always, L’Avenir have a created a facility with uninterrupted panoramic views dedicated to inspiring innovative and expansive thinking.
The facility has been constructed as the lynchpin of AdVini’s strategic focus on Africa which centres on excellence and specialisation.
The intention of the facility is to encourage innovation, collaboration, education and interaction not only within the growing business community in the local winelands, but also increasing international commerce taking place on African soil.
It is a physical representation of the culture of development, refinement and individual expansion on which AdVini has built its foundations. Whilst the concept, design and construction of the facility itself make use of raw materials like steel and wood, all crafted into a finished product by hand on-site; the technology within meets the needs of any business, both local and abroad.The same hands that cultivate the vineyards for our flagship Single Block wines have crafted this venue with the same precision and passion applied in the vineyards.
Nuanced reflections of the Single Block, and the philosophy it embodies, have been integrated into the new venue – from the angles of the structure and the decking mirroring the aerial view of Block 2; to each varietal of grape trailing up the pillars; to the water, which is the lifeblood of our vines flowing through the facility, as a gentle reminder of the constant evolution taking place around us.
This culminates in an artwork entitled ‘The Harvest’ which celebrates harvest, with one foot planted firmly in the traditions of French winemaking heritage and the other firmly planted in South African soil.
The Lodge Nestled in the valley below the Simonsberg Mountains, L’Avenir Country Lodge is an intimate, 4-star lodge located on a working wine estate just minutes away from the historical town of Stellenbosch. Features include a rim-flow pool overlooking the dams, home-cooked breakfast on the deck, complimentary wine tasting, mountain biking and trail running trails through the vineyards and a cosy fireplace ideal for sipping reds alongside in winter.
For any bespoke requests, we will be happy to assist. The Country Lodge at L’Avenir lets you step out of the hustle and bustle, with elegant accommodation amongst the rolling vineyards on a working wine farm.
