Wine tastings at our cellar door

The cellar door is a rustic mudbrick building overlooking our biodynamically and organically farmed syrah vineyard in Red Hill.

Open from weekend from 11am to 4pm you can join us for a tasting of our new release wines which includes our premium Avani syrah and our Amrit range of wines which includes our pinot noir and pinot gris for $10pp. We are able to host groups of up to six people.

Please remember Victorian State regulation dictates that each guest attending our cellar door must be fully vaccinated (double dose) for Covid-19 and evidence sighted. Unfortunately, guests unable to meet this requirement will be unable to attend.

Avani is a Sanskrit word that means ‘the earth’.


We are a family owned winery and vineyard making premium cool-climate wines on the Mornington Peninsula. Through a minimal intervention approach to our winemaking we create wines that best express their site and the growing season.

Avani Syrah is made exclusively from grapes grown on our estate vineyard in Red Hill following organic and biodynamic principles. Our Amrit range features Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris from grapes sourced from other vineyards in the region which are farmed sustainably. In addition to the classics we also make small batches of skin-contact and pet-nat style wines.
