Macedon Ranges wine region

Tour some of Australia's finest boutique wineries in the Macedon Ranges wine region for an authentic, intimate tasting journey less than an hour from Melbourne.

Take the road less travelled
Leave the city behind for the lush elevated plains, volcanic soils, rocky outcrops and misty valleys of the Macedon Ranges wine region. Discover hidden vineyards, secret gardens and passionate characters growing grapes to fulfil an obsession.

Wines of limited edition
Visit rustic cellar doors that are often simply extensions to the shed, complete with wooden floors, corrugated iron and well worn timbers. Once there, savour wines of exceptional quality made in small quantities from the finest cool-climate grapes.

A glass of Macedon
The region produces some of Australia's best sparkling wine, and the ranges' high altitude and cool climate provide perfect conditions for elegant chardonnay, pinot noir and shiraz. Most of the local wineries boast their own label of 'Macedon', the term commonly used for their sparkling wines, but there is also award-winning riesling and cabernet sauvignon, all produced in small-scale, family-owned wineries.

Don't miss a visit to Hanging Rock and Granite Hills. Taste their sparkling wines and look out for the chardonnay, shiraz and pinot noir, too.
