The General Wine Bar is a lively local hangout where we love to join forces with well-known local businesses while supporting initiatives that both empower and help individuals and communities.

Built in 2016, The General is a tribute to the original McLaren Flat General Store and Post Office in the late 1800s. It was built in place of the telegraph room that operated through the early 1900s.

Currently home to Zonte's Footstep wines, The Greek Vegetarian and a host of local producers!

Book a tasting of Zonte's Footstep wines, join us for a Friday at the Flat, a cooking demonstration, brunch, Dine Around the World Event, or check out what else we have going on!

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.

The General is a space built with authenticity, warmth and character. It is more than a venue that sells wine, it is a space, where people gather to enjoy themselves.
