We started Mural City Cellars in our beloved home city of Philadelphia to contribute to the growing movement of east coast winemaking, driven by our passion for making and drinking uncomplicated, un-stuffy, unmanipulated wine. We love Philly’s neighborhood breweries, and our vision for MCC brings wine to the community with a similar vibe: in a casual, fun environment where guests can taste an array of local wines and bring their favorite bottles home.
MCC makes a few varietals each year with crops from local growers who live within a 300-mile radius of the city. We harvest the grapes by hand alongside the farmers, do manual punchdowns, hand-crush using a hydraulic basket press imported from Italy, hand-bottle, and work with local artists for the labels. The wines we produce, as well as a MCC-curated selection of Community Supported Winery (CSW) wines, are available in our tasting room and distributed hyper-locally.
