Our cellar door, The General Wine Bar & Kitchen, is a collaborative venture between Mr. Riggs Wine Co. and Zonte’s Footstep and is the new generation of general store. Opened in December 2016 it was 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.
We encourage visitors to treat The General as their home away from home, using it for meetings, lunches, afternoon coffee or wine and everything in between. 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 food & wine flights that are sure to excite. The dynamic team offer the ultimate in wine & food experience. The first of its kind in McLaren Flat.
