The “Deadman’s Dozen” is a monthly-changing, mixed dozen wine selection procured by our team. It is a celebration of all the beverages that we are enjoying at Marion. Each month, we create a selection of seasonal, unique and mostly limited production wines so you can take a little piece of us home in a box.
The Deadman’s Dozen is available to purchase whenever you visit Marion, for $270. That’s only $22.50 per bottle - exceptional value for some truly outstanding and enticing wines.
Throughout our temporary closure, we'll be doing our best to keep supplying the Deadman's Dozen, available for pick up through our Marion Grocer.

Marion is a wine bar — an idea that grew from a love of welcoming drinking and dining establishments across the world — intended as a place to pause for a moment or for the entire evening.
Our wine selection contains the bottles we love to drink sourced locally and from around the globe. The list features small producers and exciting blends covering the breadth and depth of the winemaking world.
The menu is seasonal and generous, catering for whatever your appetite might call for. Dishes are designed for flexible dining – with smaller morsels or larger items to share.
Marion complements its neighbouring Cutler & Co. as a pre or post dinner drink or snack, or a destination in its own right.
As Melbourne’s oldest suburb, Fitzroy has its share of stories to tell. In the early 20th century, the streets and bluestone laneways surrounding Marion were once home to many uncouth drinking holes and brothels. They were also the scene of many underworld shootouts, and notoriously scandalous behaviour. Owing to its shady reputation, our corner laneway earned itself the rather self-explanatory moniker of ‘Dead Man’s Lane’. Mornings in Deadman’s Lane would often see casualties of the previous night’s excesses.
