“Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.” -Alan D. Wolfelt
The General is a space built with authenticity, warmth and character in which to serve a quality selection of meals produced by award winning chefs paired with quality wines by Mr. Riggs and Zonte’s Footstep.
Our point of difference with The General is that the space is open-planned; the kitchen in the centre of the space allowing the chefs to interact with customers to provide a unique and personal food and wine offering. With a two-course option available that changes daily, we encourage the customer to ‘come into our home and let us feed you’
Alongside mouth-watering meals that change daily, our wine tasting flights also showcase the exceptional wine-making skills of Ben Riggs and the team, as well as offering craft beer, museum wines, cocktails and other imported wines.
Creating an unforgettable experience from the heart, The General is a result of many years of research, planning and experience by its owners – Ben Riggs, Brad Rey and Anna Fisher who’s vast experience in the wine industry demonstrates the depth of belief and faith in this project.
The General Wine Bar & Kitchen is more than a venue that sells food and wine, it is a space, where people gather to enjoy themselves whilst learning more about top quality food and wine.
The General welcomes to its kitchen Chef Ben Sommariva, formerly at The Kitchen Door Restaurant and Fino Willunga. He will be presenting a creative daily menu featuring house made products, along with free flowing, flexible, food & wine flights that are sure to excite.
