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


We are a boutique winery and vineyard producing premium cool-climate wines on the Mornington Peninsula. Adopting a minimal intervention approach, we create wines of character which best express their site and growing season.

Avani Syrah is our estate wine, made exclusively from grapes grown on our vineyard in Red Hill South.

Our Amrit range showcases Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris from other cool-climate vineyards in Main Ridge and Shoreham. We also experiment with new winemaking approaches in our limited release vintages (skin-contact Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and Sauvignon Blanc).
