Avani x Jeow
Saturday 8 June to Monday 10 June

We are excited to welcome Thi Le, Head Chef of Laotian eatery, Jeow, to the Avani Cellar Door this King’s Birthday Long Weekend from 8 June to 10 June.

Thi, who previously established the famed Anchovy and was awarded the Gourmet Traveller Chef of the Year 2023, is crafting a share-style three course menu for $95 per person (food only). Expect some classic dishes and punchy flavours, such as steamed tapioca pearl dumplings filled with zucchini and crunchy cashew and South Australian Calamari Goi with cucumber, green chilli and snake bean. 

We will also be showcasing our new release 2023 Amrit range of wines which will be on pour during the long weekend. The 2023 year was a cool and wet growing season, vintage was later than usual with small yields in most of our vineyards. This has produced wines of great intensity, depth and a sense of place about them. We are excited to show these to you!

Check out the full menu in the link below. A vegetarian menu will also be available on the day.

Advanced notice of any dietary requirement is essential. Please note, we are not able to cater for fructose free (no onion and garlic), no chilli and vegan dietary requirements. Contact us if you have a crustacean allergy.
