Red wine and spices are the base ingredients for this European winter warmer: but from there, anything is possible. You'll find mulled wine in bars and pubs all over Melbourne in the colder months, and let's just say it's the drink equivalent of a crackling fireplace.

Fancy a meal with that? Make your way to one of our favourite spots for a Sunday roast. Or, if you don't like your wine warm, check out some of the best wine bars in Melbourne. 

Melbourne's best mulled wine

At Mjolner, a Norse mythology-themed bar under Hardware Lane, you'll be able to warm up like the Vikings with a punchy mulled wine with cognac, port, juniper, wood and cranberries, blazed and served hot with a house spice teabag. 

  • Restaurants
  • Carlton

The kings of cheese and booze pairings are taking the traditional German path here, brewing up their Glühwein with aniseed stars, whole nutmeg, cardamom pods and hints of citrus. Each guest gets a complimentary nip on arrival, and you can also drink by the glass at both Carlton and St Kilda locations. Available exclusively during the winter months.

Collingwood-based bottleshop, wine bar and haven for all things wine, Glou Melbourne is dishing out mulled wine this winter and true to form, it's made from a biodynamic drop that makes it all the more smashable.

  • Shopping
  • Bottle shops
  • Brunswick East

Lygon Street's wine nerd paradise ReWine will be serving mulled wine at their wine bar all winter long. Prefer to make it at home? ReWine also sells a syrup to add to your own wine mix, perfect if bracing the outdoors to get your fix seems way too arduous. 

  • Bars
  • South Wharf

An award-winning bar and café in South Wharf, The Boatbuilders Yard captures the charm of Melbourne's Maritime precinct with a modern fitout housed inside an original historic shed. Its mulled wine is your classic, run-of-the-mill hot stuff that's perfectly spiced and is best enjoyed by the venue's fireplace.
