Authentic country charm with delicious food and welcoming staff this tin and timber shed is a destination not to be missed. The Merricks General Wine Store is a Peninsula icon established in 1924. Today it serves as the Cellar Door for Baillieu, Elgee Park and Quealy wines. The French inspired seasonal menu on offer for breakfast and lunch can be enjoyed by discerning tourist and locals 7 days a week. Customers are able to dine at table, taste wines by the open fire, on the sea view deck or under the vines whilst experiencing the rustic country atmosphere of this charming heritage building.
