Gisborne Peak Winery
Gisborne Peak Winery
Perched upon the idle Mt. Gisborne, this beautiful winery overlooks rolling green hills and sits amongst the calming atmosphere of the Victorian countryside. Here in the heart of the Macedon Ranges, Gisborne Peak Winery specialises in a wide range of wines including, pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling and semillion.
The thirteen-acre site has recently been taken over by new management. The vines were first planted in 1990 and was ran by Bob and Barbara Nixon up until May 2023. The new owners hope to continue the couple’s legacy and emanate their love and passion for the vineyard.
Gisborne Peak Winery’s educational and interactive wine tasting is now conducted as a seated wine flight where guests are presented with four forty-millimetre pours of wines of their choice. Equipped with a beautifully rustic on-site restaurant that creates delicious wood-fired pizzas and offers cellar door snacks and taster platters, the winery has a multitude of activities and amenities on offer.
Located only fifty kilometres from Melbourne, the picturesque and peaceful Gisborne Peak Winery features the most stunningly quaint on-site accommodation. Perfect for a romantic getaway, or as an escape from the city, the four eco-cottages overlook the winery’s vines and provide guests with a calming and charming atmosphere. Guests can settle into the self-contained cottages and enjoy the sweeping views of the countryside.
The cellar door is open seven days a week for everyone to enjoy and indulge in all of the winery’s delicious wines. Its cool climate creates the perfect conditions to create a rich and fruitful pinot noir.
