Wine industry duo combine in McLaren Vale

Lovers of casual gourmet destinations will be keen to check out McLaren Vale newcomer The General Wine Bar & Kitchen

The new tasting venue and eatery is the brainchild of Mr Riggs winemaker and Zonte's Footstep co-owner Brad Rey. 

The General Wine Bar & Kitchen at 55a Main Road, McLaren Flat, combines a wine bar, open kitchen and cellar door experience - and is housed in a 100-year-old former general store. 

Chef Sommariva, formerly at the Kitchen Door restaurant at Penny's Hill, Fino’s Willunga and The Salopian, creates a daily set menu using the best local produce, with a choice of two or three courses.

The wine duo select their wine pairings to match the chef’s latest offerings, creating bespoke wine and food experiences every day.

Diners can choose to sit looking out over the vineyards, or at what they call “the pass”, sitting at the kitchen bench. 

The General Wine Bar & Kitchen will house both wine labels, Mr Riggs and Zonte’s Footstep, as a cellar door experience. Unique wine flights are on offer. 

The General is open seven days for wine tastings from 10am-5pm with wine flights from $25. The Kitchen is open for lunch Wednesday to Sunday 12noon-3pm offering two courses for $55. On Fridays, The General is open from 4.30pm until late for after-work drinks, pintxos and dinner.
