In less time than it takes to watch your favourite program on Netflix, the Macedon Ranges offers you the opportunity to sample some of the most awarded wines in Australia.
A well-kept secret, this region is all about variety, depth of flavour and quality, playing host to over 40 vineyards and producers.
With a rich and long history in producing some of the finest Sparkling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this has now been combined with the production of new and exciting varietals such as Processco, Gamay, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Lagrein. All of which reflect the hard work and commitment that goes into each bottle.
Stunningly captivating, this region is famed for its natural landmarks and beauty, and is no doubt mainland Australia’s coldest wine region. With vines grown on hillsides as high as 800 meters above sea level, it is here, where wine making tradition and terroir combine in order to create the long lasting quality these vignerons are known for.
Families of vignerons, stemming from the 60’s, still own many of the wineries today. Vines that have been hardened, weathered and handed down, are now in their prime. It is here where you’ll often still be able to meet the winemaker and discuss the grape, wine and its life over a glass or two.
So, hit the road for a short drive from Melbourne to uncover the cellar doors of these award-winning boutique wineries for an experience unlike any other.
