Mount Macedon Wine Tour
Visit three wineries
Depart at 8.30 am as we head to Paramoor winery for our first wine tasting at Paramoor Winery, which was established in 2005 by Will Fraser, and is already one of the most popular and awarded wineries in the Macedon Ranges, maintaining a 5 star status in James Halliday’s 2014 Wine Companion. A boutique operation, Paramoor Winery is not about mass production. Quality always comes before quantity – and there is quality in everything the winery does. From the meticulous selection of grapes for Paramoor’s wine.
We shall visit Hanging Rock winery originally made its name with sparkling wines and the Sparkling Macedon is still winning awards and creating smiles with every cork popped. Pinot Noir thrives in the cool-climate at Macedon, making a svelte red, while a perfect patch at Heathcote provides grapes for a full-bodied Shiraz. Hanging Rock makes a wide range of white wines including Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. Andrew at cellar door is your friendly guide to vintages new and old
Soon after the 2nd winery visit, we shall have a nice BBQ Lunch prepared by Harrison at the Hanging Rock Picnic Area while all guests try to climb the Rock before Lunch (chicken wing, sausages, pork chops & prawn, bread and salads) well-lined stomas before our next winery visit.
