The Macedon Ranges are approximately an hour north west of Melbourne and is home to over 30 wineries, including one of our favourite cellar doors as well as one of our favourite wines.
The region is particularly well known for it's beautiful pinot noir, Bindi & Curly Flat being two of our favourites. The cellar doors in the region are on the smaller, more personal side and are generally family run businesses.
The region is also home to some interesting non-wine attractions. There is a fantastic view from the top of Mount Macedon and the infamous Hanging Rock is a nice place to visit and take a walk (and maybe take a picnic, if you dare!!!)
There are also some really nice towns in the region. Kyneton is home to a number of beautiful restaurants, some lovely stores to browse and a large botanic gardens. A few of our favourite restaurants are Source Dining, La Bonta and Mr Carsissi.
Daylesford and Hepburn Springs are home to natural mineral springs and as a result have many day spas offering a wide and varied range of massages and other treatments. The restaurant that the area is most well known for is Lake House, which is housed in a beautiful setting. We also visited Kasuki's, where we found the food and service to be exceptional.
