A boutique dining spot is set to debut in the Fleurieu Peninsula, with natural wine bar Muni set to open its doors in Willunga this week.
Opening just in time for South Australia’s warmer weather, Muni will be the idyllic place to relax with a glass of wine in the company of great friends. Home to an array of boutique and small-batch wines, Muni will be highlighting hidden gems of the wine world with their menu.
Set to be a wine lovers delight, Muni is currently under construction on Willunga’s High Street, with October 15 pencilled in as the highly-anticipated launch date.
With plates designed to share between friends with a good drop of wine in hand, the food will be broadly Asian-inspired, regularly changing to highlight the seasonal produce of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Sourcing ingredients directly from the Willunga Farmers Market and other local suppliers, the flavours of the Fleurieu will run through each dish created by chefs and co-owners Mug Chen and Chai Wu.
Muni is the brainchild of Chen and Wu, and close friend Violette Flint. Together the trio has created a space that is light and lofty, with stunning high timber archways and a wine wall that is sure to make anyone envious. Designed by Sans-arc and constructed by M Samaras Build, the final build channelled Muni’s ethos in their final design.
While their wine menu may be small, it is chosen with the love, skill and style of Flint, who will be overseeing the selection of drinks appearing on the rotating menu.
Quietly opening to a small crowd last Friday, the wine bar gave South Australians a sneak peek at what to expect from the cosy wine haven come opening time. Guests could enjoy a cold tipple of Travis Tausend’s Sea Bass from the Adelaide Hills or BK Wines Carbonic Pinot Noir.
Revealing a taste of what Muni’s food menu may feature, Chen and Wu showcased their wood ear mushroom dish with garlic vinegar and Jauma Farm vinegar marinated cucumber with Sichuan pepper. An array of local cheeses was also on offer.
Ahead of its anticipated opening, Muni has announced its collaboration with Cross Wines, who will feature in the line-up of the wine bars carefully selected drops.
Finding its home on High Street, Muni will be joining the flourishing array of wine bars in the Fleurieu Peninsula, with the Hither & Yon cellar door and Shifty Lizard Brewing residing on the same road.
The wine bar is now open for bookings and will be open from Thursday to Sunday after this weekend.
You can find Muni at 2/3 High Street, Willunga, 5172.
