Nestled between rolling hills and over looking the beautiful coastline of Westernport Bay, the homestead was built in 1922 to serve as a community space, post office and general store.
Merrick’s General Wine Store is the most iconic historical establishment on the Mornington Peninsula comprising of a providore, popular verandah coffee window for locals, breakfast, lunch and dinner menus along with everything in between. The cellar door is home to Elgee Park wines, 100% estate grown and Mornington Peninsula’s oldest vineyard and Baillieu wines as well as some small batch local producers that are exclusive to this cellar door. Your wine tasting at Merrick’s General Wine Store starts with sparkling wine and includes Riesling, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Here you can sample the popular styles of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and some less seen and very special wines on tasting here. Choose your glass of wine to enjoy with lunch. In warmer months you can enjoy dining on the sunny terrace or if you need to stay snug and warm you can find a cosy corner by the open fire.
Retaining all the character and charm of vintage “Australiana” with its tin and timber structure, timber floors, verandahs and decks, Merrick’s General Store is an ideal lunch spot to stop for a leisurely and relaxed lunch with your small group in any season. You can also take the time to wander though the garden to Merrick’s House Art Gallery that features local and Australian artists with regularly curated exhibitions and local traders. It is in Merricks House that The Traders, a seasonally curated retail collection pops up twice yearly.
