The Macedon Ranges has a long and fascinating history, and the story of Mount Macedon Winery is no different.
Located on the western slopes of Mount Macedon, with impressive views overlooking the Black Forest Valley, MMW sits at 680m above sea level, making it one of the highest altitude wineries in Australia.
The land was originally used as a dairy and then a blueberry farm before the vines were planted in 1989.
In fact, MMW once had ties with Olivia Newton-John and the fruit was used to make wine out of her Koala Blue range, which is a fun bit of Macedon Ranges history and trivia!
The MMW vineyard has passed through a few hands over the years and is now very much a grassroots, family-owned business tended to by owners Dylan and Elisha alongside their dedicated crew.
The positive experiences that each of them has had with agriculture in the past shapes their approach, not just to the wine, but to the farm and the Macedon Ranges region as a whole.
“Watching visitors discover a love of the outdoors, eat fresh produce from our area and taste wine from grapes we grow onsite never gets old.”
Elisha and Dylan want everyone to get the most out of their Mount Macedon Winery experience. Be it a few casual glasses at the cellar door on a Friday afternoon, or a daylong celebration enjoying and exploring the property with friends and family.
With exciting plans for the future, Mount Macedon Winery continues to grow and offer a spectacular setting for everyone to appreciate and celebrate!
