Mobile kitchen to pull in at Amavi Cellars


A mobile kitchen is coming to the vineyards at Amavi Cellars.

Olive Marketplace & Café will be pulling a food truck up to the Southside tasting room, 3796 Peppers Bridge Road, to serve visitors on the weekends.

A seasonal lunch menu highlighting local, regional and sustainable ingredients will be served Fridays through Sundays starting now through the end of October, Amavi announced.

Everything from small bites to full meals will be on the menu and can be enjoyed onsite or off. Food will be served 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

The partnership brings a “wine-country-casual dining option” to the Southside Winery District, where restaurants are few and far between. The service also comes with a hard-to-beat view. Amavi Cellars sits on a hillside vineyard, offering a panoramic view of the Valley.

The Olive food truck will serve an array of items starting around $4 and running up to $15.25, according to a sample menu. The menu is subject to change throughout the season. Examples of offerings include artisan cheeses with apricot jam and candied molasses crostini ($4/cheese); a charcuterie assortment ($14); roasted olives ($6); roasted beets with lemon-cumin yogurt, bleu d’Auvergne and toasted walnuts ($12.25); and albacore tuna nicoise ($15.25).

Desserts include chocolates, chocolate mousse and créme brulee. Amavi wines by the glass and bottle are served, as well as an assortment of nonalcoholic beverages.

Amavi, founded in 2001, specializes in 100 percent state fruit under acclaimed winemaker Jean-Francois Pellet. Under Executive Chef and owner Jake Crenshaw, Olive has grown in the last several years to include full-service catering and a custom mobile kitchen.
