Rigoni's Long Lunch At Lloyd Brother's

The Sunday Long Lunches are back at Lloyd Brothers in McLaren Vale. Take a tour through their new Olive Oil Press house with General Manager Sam Temme, as he describes the process of making Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Kalamata Table Olives and handpicked, Single Vineyard wines.

Chef Tony Bailey from Rigoni's warms things up as he draws on the rich flavours of Italy to prepare one of his trademark lunches. Each course will be matched with a flight of Lloyd Brothers wines, with the rare opportunity to sample and compare some of their past vintages.

Seated in their private dining area next to a log fire, you are invited to take the time, slow down and enjoy the beautiful food and wine of our region.

The first Long Lunch starts on the weekend of Sea & Vines Festival (Sunday 7th June & Monday 8th June), then each Sunday for the rest of the month. $80 per person (all inclusive).
