Wine Bar
Toorak Cellars is equal parts bottle shop and wine bar, located just opposite Toorak station on Beatty Avenue in Armadale. Our aim is simple: to source, acquire and serve the best wines we can find at any given price point, from Australia and around the world.

We believe strongly in the idea that wine should taste like fruit and minerals instead of oak and alcohol. The wines we serve should reflect with great clarity the soil from which they were grown, and the four seasons that passed through that vineyard during a specific vintage.

We serve a constantly changing twenty wines by-the-glass, or you can open any bottle straight off the shelf. We don't have a kitchen, but if you're hungry we do have some creative ways of feeding you.

Great wine is for everyone, and everyone is welcome. See you soon at the Cellars!

  • An Evening with Kevin McCarthy MDI Wines

    $40.00 per person

    Prepaid

    12 July 2022 only
    We are very excited to announce the second event of our Fireside Series! An intimate tasting with our favourite winemakers along with snacks by the fire. Second up is Kevin McCarthy of MDI / Quealy wines. If you area lover OR have ever been slightly interested in skin contact or Orange wines, you don't want to miss this! As we sip wines and eat snacks by the fire Kevin will be telling tales from travelling extensively across Northern Italy / Slovenia in the late 90s to study Pinot Grigio to the first-ever Australian plantings of Friulano at the Quealy vineyard in 2006. Find out how a humble wine region in the Murray Darling came into the picture leading to the creation of MDI Wines.

    In particular the girl behind the bar dressed in black was very aloof in genuine and not friendly. Very cryptic in the responses pointed to things rather than describe them and generally did not have the attitude that she wanted to be at work. The offerings for food are very poor and the food next door at the pizza is beyond acceptable. It’s really poor that in 2022 we have such substandard and low-level hospitality along with the inability to really have good offerings for food and drink rolled into one. That’s why people go overseas for their true experiences that are memorable. This was less memorable

    Great spot & has a nice feel to it, busy, which was great to see on a Friday night. Wine options good but unfortunately the service was very disappointing. The people working the bar (2/3) I spoke to seemed to know little to nothing about the wine (and I was only asking about the ones they were serving by the glass). It was disappointing as this place is in my local area but when other places deliver outstanding service it’s hard to pick this place over any of them. Didn’t eat the food but it looked & smelled fantastic.

    My Wife and I had an evening wine tasting of Murdoch Hill and Bondar wines this on the 3 April at The Alps Wine Bar. Brilliant wines, great food to accompany and great knowledge from the Team and the Wine Makers. I'll be booking in to the next event, brilliant!

    No service at all, booked a table outside but placed in courtyard, surcharge was rude particularly given no service assistance when choosing bottle. Would have been good to be warned of the surcharge when booking with a simple reminder. Disappointing given we have been there many times before and end enjoyed it.

    We need better food for a wine bar there is little available and given late. Bread charcuterie boards - in stead we need to rely on restaurants outside premise- noise level inside too loud -should be soft music or trio band

    One of my favourite local wine bars. Cosy atmosphere, very helpful staff. Good selection of wines (as you'd expect!) Just a shame that the food offerings are a bit limited and kitchen closed early (due to lack of staff I think) so nothing was available and had to get pizza from 2 doors down, which they then deliver to the wine bar (really good pizza btw)

    Heard great things about this place. But was really underwhelmed. No atmosphere, just noisy. Food is overpriced, small servings and small range. Wine is also marked up to the max. Easily spent $300+ for wine and nibbles for 4 on a low key Friday. Won’t be back

    I attended with a friend, we had 2x the same drinks, which was a Limoncello Spritz and a Mandarin Spritz. So we had two orders. First time I was charged the correct price $36, the 2nd time they charged me suddenly $41.40. I didn't notice until I got my credit card transactions. Very disappointing, otherwise I would have recommended the bar.
