Current owners, Doug and Carolyn May, established the vineyard in 1994. With their love of their homeland, they pursued a natural approach, and are proud to be certified organic with NASAA. This means the vineyard produces grapes that are grown and processed without the use of synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilisers.

Vic Country Market allows you to buy one bottle at a time and sample to your heart’s content.


Martin Street Coffee

Martin Street Coffee are mighty fine roasters; in fact, they’ve been named one of the best in Victoria, so you’re in safe hands, coffee lovers. They roast daily, at their Blackwood Forest-based roastery. Perched amongst the treetops in the Wombat State Forest, the crew air roast on handcrafted, bespoke air roasting machines. They draw and heat fresh forest air and use it to produce coffee that’s smooth, full-flavoured, sweet; never bitter. This earthly approach uses 20% less energy and emits 90% less smoke than traditional gas and wood-fired roasting methods. On Vic Country Market choose varying sizes of their signature blend or decaf.


Big Tree Distillery is the result of a gin-loving husband and wife team who loved good gin so much they decided to make their own. Distilled in the Macedon Ranges region, on Jack’s Springs Farm, they produce a range of farm crafted small batch Australian gins. On Vic Country Market you can buy their core range, Claude Navy Strength and Elegant Dry, and their seasonal Cumquat Double Distilled.


Holgate Brewhouse has been proudly at the forefront of Australia’s craft brewing movement for over 20 years. They are 100% independent and have fostered an innovative and creative beer-making culture which has been crafting beers since 1999. Co-founded by Paul and Tash Holgate, the family-owned business continues to share their passion and beers through their brew-pub in Woodend.


Gisborne Peak Winery is an incredible winery to visit, with its cottages surrounded by vines, and has been recognised with numerous cellar door experience awards. And as they say, great wine starts in the vineyard. If you can’t experience this magnificence firsthand, Gisborne Peak grows varietals best suited for cold climate and sells them on the Vic Country market website you’re likely to find their chardonnay, riesling, pinot noir and sparkling pinot noir.
