Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 November

Welcome to the annual Macedon Ranges Wine and Food Festival, affectionately known as Budburst. Help us celebrate the buds bursting on a new vintage and have a taste of all our special wines.


I'm in, how does it work?

Set in the vineyards dotted around the stunning Macedon Ranges, this two-day festival showcases the best wine and food of the region, all while the buds burst on the grapevines for our next vintage.

Come along and make the most of the live entertainment, country hospitality, wine tastings, dinners, lunches and so much more!
