The Ingenious Fools On The Hill

In the cool temperatures of 1998, Graeme Leith planted pinot noir and chardonnay in the Macedon Ranges on a steep, north facing slope with a top elevation of 742 metres above sea level. He was deemed a ‘fool’ by the locals, “too cold,” they said!

The Fools on the Hill pinot and chardonnay embody this delightful story of Graeme and Cameron dealing with this extremely cold-climate vineyard.

The team at Passing Clouds joyfully celebrate now that these vines have come of age, reached maturity and are producing high quality fruit in abundance. For the twentieth birthday of this vineyard in the picturesque town of Musk – just five minutes from Daylesford – Passing Clouds has rebranded and launched the 2018 Estate Chardonnay and Estate Pinot Noir.
