Experience

Housed in an old renovated general store Merricks serves as a cellar door for smaller wineries that don’t have their own, a providore and a restaurant that focuses on local produce. It can get really busy on weekend, but it’s a lovely unique spot to try some wines or have lunch.

Beverages

Stocking a range of wines from different local producers their main labels are Elgee Park and Baillieu who are both local to MGWS. They also have other wines from Merricks Estate and Dexter among others. It provides a good opportunity to try some wines from labels you may not get to try otherwise.

Food

They describe it as French inspired country cuisine, focusing on local, seasonal ingredients. We would almost say Modern Australian as it has a nice mix of dishes from various locations. We had the best pumpkin we have ever tasted their once, who knew pumpkin could be so delicious!

Setting

They have transformed an old general store into the cellar door and restaurant. It’s bright and airy with a nice country charm sort of fit out and a leafy terrace. Although not on a winery, it’s still an impressive venue to visit.

What we like

The opportunity to try wines from smaller producers and the added bonus of a bit of shopping when your done. It’s also open 7 days a week which is a real win.

What we don’t like

If you are after vineyard views, this isn’t the place.
