MGS Cellars is the first wine shop/stop in Moonambel. You can buy over 100 different wine varieties from 15 Pyrenees wineries; seven are from Moonambel, three from Redbank and the remainder from Landsborough, Warrenmang, Frenchmans and Avoca. At least eight Gold Medal wineries are represented. MGS Cellars was established in 2020 to represent local wineries and smaller single-vineyard winemakers to create a ‘one of a kind’ cellar door regional experience. The Pyrenees region is a grape growers paradise.
You can choose from mixed reds and whites. Learn the story behind wines. For example, Peerick Vineyards ‘2019 Two Nurses Viognier’ and ‘2020 Two Nurses Rose’ were inspired by COVID19 nurses, especially the two practising nurses from the Peerick Vineyards family.
Look for the Taltarni HopenRouge and HopenBlanc Beer wine, which is brewed using the same process as beer. This is often sold out but MGS Cellars owner, Danny, has a good knack for securing Limited Edition wines, just ask him what he has. Furthermore, the Mixed Specials rack is a winner and constantly restocked.
MGS Cellars is connected to the Moonambel General store. Homemade pies, sausage rolls and slices are available, along with fresh fish, meat and produce, making it well worth your stop.
Even if you do visit all the Pyrenees wineries, you need to come to MGS Cellars.
