Our New Residence.
The General Wine Bar & Kitchen is a collaborative venture between Mr. Riggs Wine Co and Zonte’s Footstep. The aim for The General Wine Bar & Kitchen is to become a McLaren Flat drawcard providing locals, visitors and wine lovers alike with an interesting food and wine experience that delivers on both wineries passion for ‘being’.
It is the new generation of general store. Originally built around 1910, the building operated as the McLaren Flat Post office after opening in 1911. Changing shape and form over the years, it eventually became a general store, the hub for McLaren Flat locals. In 2014, it became the site for the Home Grain Bakery which is also undergoing a major transformation.
The General welcomes to their kitchen, Chef Ben Sommariva, formerly The Kitchen Door Restaurant and Fino’s Willunga. His creative two-course daily menu feature house made products, and dishes like Beef Tartare, Smoked Mulloway Clam Chowder, Chargrilled Dry Aged Rump with French Mustard, Anchovy & Elk Salad and Morcilla with Pepper, Broccolini & Herb Sauce.
As well as offering a broad range of wine varieties to suit all tastes, we offer plenty of museum wines available by the glass and free flowing, flexible, food & wine flights that are sure to excite. This dynamic team intend to offer the ultimate in wine & food experience. The first of its kind in McLaren Flat.
