Join Lyons Will Estate for an exclusive winter long lunch with El Pintxo Melbourne, an intimate five-course festive afternoon taking place within the Lyons Will barrel room.

Celebrate the flavours of the Iberian peninsula, share a table and enjoy some of their latest and museum releases. These lunches will be held on Sunday June 9 and Sunday June 16.

In Spain, food and wine bring the people together. Family and friends meet throughout the day to debrief on life with pintxos, tapas, sangria and wine.

“We are so proud of our heritage and the passion and fire it exudes and we love to share this experience,” says Iker from El Pintxo.

Cooked over the fire, Iker and Shirin will dish up a five-course meal, bringing together the best Spanish ingredients and produce from their favorite local suppliers.

El Pintxo Melbourne are hospitality couple, chef Iker Garcia who hails from the Basque Country in Spain and Shirin Harvison, Australian born and bred (but with Spanish heritage).

Iker honed his skills under his Michelin-starred chef father, Jon Garcia, and in turn has brought his passion for Spanish food to life here in Australia.

“We source our fresh ingredients locally, and the distinctive Spanish ingredients we use ensure a taste of Spain in every mouthful,” Iker said.

“Come join us for an exclusive lunch in the barrel room at Lyons Will Estate, where we will share a table, make new friends and exchange conversations about food and wine,” Shirin said.

Ollie, Lyons Will Estate, said what better way to spend a wintery afternoon than among friends with some rich and rustic cooking by their friend Iker Garcia.

Meant as a food and wine experience, each of the five courses have been matched and can be enjoyed alongside a tasting of Lyons Will Estate wine.

“We will also be pulling a few museum wines out from the cellar,” Ollie said.

This winter long lunch by El Pintxo will take place at Lyons Will Estate on Sunday June 9 and Sunday June 16 at 12.30pm. $98 per person for five courses.

Wine can be purchased a la carte on the day, or matched to each course along with a number of other drinks available for purchase. Transport to and from Lyons Will Estate can also be arranged as its a day where time will be on our side.
