Due Volte at Yalumba
Yalumba 13th April 2019
Australia's most historic family owned winery opens its doors unlike ever before for an unforgettable evening in the winery's most exclusive space, Tank 11 & 12. Enjoy Italian flair and hospitality, with a twist, as two of Sydney's top chefs (Alessandro Pavoni and Giovanni Pilu) are inspired by the Barossa's heritage and bounty as part of the Tasting Australia 2019 program.
These evocative rooms, rarely open to the public, reside below the original heritage-listed Administration Building in Angaston and are former concrete winemaking tanks that have retained the unique wine stained patina of their previous lives.
On the evening Yalumba will unlock the museum for a unique tour of one of the country's most iconic wine cellars and select a collection of wines to serve throughout the dinner.
Dinner will delight and surprise; prepared by two of Sydney's finest Italian chefs - Alessandro Pavoni (Ormeggio at The Spit, Via Alta) and Giovanni Pilu (Pilu at Freshwater) - service will take an interesting turn during the evening.
Pavoni and Pilu will each prepare two courses; first to be served in one tank, before switching halfway through the meal to be served in the second tank.
Pavoni was born in Lombardy (the region of Milan and Lake Como) and has been recognised by The Australian in their Top 50 restaurants and holds two hats from the Good Food Guide. Pilu was born in Sardinia and relocated to Australia in 1992, bringing a love of simple ingredients and minimum fuss to Sydney kitchens ever since. Pilu at Freshwater was recognised by the Good Food Guide with two hats.
This exciting Italian-inspired menu and the world-class wines will give guests twice - due volte - as much gastronomic joy in one spectacular evening.
