Enter Via Laundry x Avani
14 August to 26 September
We are excited to welcome our friend Helly Raichura from Enter Via Laundry to the Avani Winery and Cellar Door from mid August to the end of September. The collaboration with EVL brings together two women of Indian heritage who are each trail blazers in the food & wine industry in Australia.
The food at EVL is immersed in Indian culture and is ingrained in the belief that native produce, ancient techniques and recipes are the birthplace of all food, and continues to evolve with new influences. The menu is a reflection of the food evolution journey – showcasing ancient techniques, evolving recipes, local produce and a passion for sharing the rich history of food. And it all comes together around an open table, and in the best of company. Each lunch at EVL is designed as a story, narrated by the chef; tracing the history, illuminating the culture and influences behind the cuisine, and delivering a unique experience to be shared by a small number of guests meeting for the first time.
The shared degustation menu is $188 pp (food only). We will be offering a special wine pairing option featuring a range of Avani wines for $75pp. Places are limited and bookings are essential.
Avani is a Sanskrit word that means ‘the earth’.
We are a small batch producer of premium cool-climate wines on the Mornington Peninsula. Through a minimal intervention approach to winemaking we create wines of character which best express their site and growing season.
Avani syrah is made exclusively from grapes grown on our estate vineyard in Red Hill South following biodynamic principles.
Our Amrit range features pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot gris from grapes sourced from other vineyards in the region. We also experiment with new winemaking approaches in our limited release vintages (skin-contact pinot gris, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir sparkling pet-nat).
All our current release vintages are available for tasting at our winery and cellar door every weekend from 11am to 4pm. We offer a seated wine-tasting experience and are happy to host groups of up to eight people. Send us an email to book. Walk-ins are welcome.
