Mount Macedon Winery
Cellar door was built in 1994, using Blue Stone and burnt timber beams. It still has the same character and charm to this day. There have only been two other owners in this time and the present day owners have extended the cellar door area to include a terrace decking area so everyone can enjoy the view, with their glasses of wine and perhaps a light lunch.

Estate Vineyards / AVA
The vineyard is located on the western slopes of Mount Macedon, it is surrounded by the Macedon Regional Park and overlooks the Black Forrest. It is 690 metres above sea level (above the front line) so we can expect a couple of snowfalls each winter.
The farm area around the vineyard has a variety of animals: 2 Scottish Highland Cows, 14 sheep, and 7 chooks whose eggs were sold at Cellar Door ..... and our new adoption: 2 donkeys.
The owner’s much loved Springer spaniel, “Charlie” often greets visitors with a wagging tail and a lick and the two part “rag doll” cats keep snakes and mice away.
The farm is lucky to have a family of wedge tail eagles, that live in the tall trees of the Macedon Regional Park above the vineyards. These eagles survey the area each day. Their very majestical flights are a delight to those who spot them. Our other wild species, which frequent the vineyard, are wombats, echidnas, kangaroos, rabbits and koalas.
The two acres of gardens around the house and cellar door have been re-instated to their former glory, with many rhodendrons and azaleas being planted in the shade of the cut leaf birches, and roses and Australian natives enjoying the northern sun in the afternoons. There is little problem with watering as we have a number of bores, with fresh clean water from the springs under Mount Macedon.
