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.
Mount Macedon Winery resides in Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Dja Dja Wurrung country, with Mount Macedon itself being a place of cultural significance and Indigenous history for First Nation people.
Before being named Mount Macedon Winery, the farm itself was called 'Geburrh', which is the local indigenous name for Mount Macedon.
The fertile volcanic soil at MMW was first farmed as a dairy and then, many years later, a blueberry farm before the first vines were planted in 1989 by Don and Pam Ludby. Several years after the initial planting and when the vineyard had become fully established, MMW had ties with Olivia Newton-John's own wine label under her Koala Blue wine range.
We are passionate about great wines that tell a story, that give a sense of place and a taste of the season. At almost 700 meters above sea level, MMW vines have clung to the side of Mount Macedon since 1989, in what is well regarded as the toughest growing conditions of any vineyard on mainland Australia, a reputation we are quite proud of.
