From ultra-premium sparkling wines to sell-out pinot noirs, you’ll find a wine for festivities or the fireside. Put them to the taste test against perfectly matched seasonal produce in Courabyra’s restaurant, enjoy a glass out on the deck or shop the cellar door to take our cold-climate wines home with you.

We have arranged with Bundyi Tours to allow you to combine both a visit to the restaurant and a cultural tour with a pick up and drop off at Avalon Farm Stay.  

If you are looking for a different experience with some friends adding this to your stay at Avalon would really make an exciting additional day.
