Where to drink mulled wine in Melbourne

Warm up with a cup of zesty, spicy mulled wine this winter

Written by

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 town in the colder months, and you'll be warm in no time even if you don't have a fireplace handy.

Still cold? Make you're way to out to one of our favourite hot chocolates. If you don't like your wine warm, check out some of the best wine bars in Melbourne. 

Melbourne's best mulled wine

  • 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. 

  • 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.

Ok, so this isn't quite what you might have in mind when thinking of mulled wine, but the Espy's resident restaurant Mya Tiger has whipped up a mulled wine-inspired number for you. This rich and full-bodied Chinese Five Spice Mulled Wine Sour is a combination of Mt Gay Black Barrel Rum, Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Chinese five spice, lemon, red wine and egg whites.

  • 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.
