The Macedon Ranges is a dark horse of Australian cool climate wine and is home to graceful, elegant pinot noir and chardonnay. The high altitude region is littered with over 40 boutique wineries working on unique terroir in and a landscape populated with volcanic formations.
If Portsea (on the Mornington Peninsula) is where urban dwellers spend their Summer, Macedon Ranges is where they eventually end up in retirement. Golf courses, degustation restaurants and quaint country living within a stones throw of Melbourne CBD, it’s a great places to wind down. If you’re planning to check it out, be sure to stop by Curly Flat, Hanging Rock and Granite Hills.
