The Macedon Ranges Wine Region is less than an hour from the Melbourne CBD.
Vineyard altitudes in the Macedon Ranges range from 300 to 800 metres above sea level. Our region is cool to cold by world standards. The popular varieties of the region are delicate sparkling wines, refined Chardonnay and award winning Pinot Noir. In vineyards surrounding Lancefield, Romsey and Trentham delicate floral aromas can be found in the wine due to slow ripening during cool autumnal temperatures. As we move beyond Kyneton toward the rocky outcrops to the Cobaws more robust styles can be found with Shiraz and Cabernet.
Most producers are boutique, family owned and lovingly producing signature wines, some using age-old techniques. As a result the Region offers wine that is limited in quantity and exceptionally high in quality.
