Gisborne Peak Winery
Situated only 40 minutes out of Melbourne CBD and within 30 minutes of Melbourne Airport Gisborne Peak Winery is ideally placed for the day tripper or for some-one on a return to the airport. Head up the Calder Freeway and exit at the Gisborne South/Sunbury exit and follow the brown tourism signs to Gisborne Peak, just 5 minutes off the freeway.
The vines at Gisborne Peak date back to 1978 when Bob Nixon planted about an acre as a hobby. This has grown to about 14 acres these days and the hobby is now a full time business with the 7-day a week cellar-door managed by his wife Barbara. The winery is located in the macedon ranges Region, cool-climate by definition and clean, crisp wines as a result. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Semillion are the 4 producing grapes on the property and Shiraz and Muscat are sourced from outside the region and sold at the cellar-door.
Food is available every day and on weekends and public holidays (or by prior arrangement for groups) we fire up the wood-fired pizza oven and cook the best pizzas you could dream about. Gourmet is a word that still leaves their description lacking!
Wine tastings are free, but a small charge is applied to coach groups, and bottle prices range from $17.50 to $30. Value for money is assured with quality cool climate wines full of natural flavour and balance.
We have a "low-oak"policy that produces fruitful chardonnays without the interference of too much wood! We make a great unwooded Chardonnay too for the purists.
Come and visit us, we are waiting for you to arrive with a friendly smile and a committment to help you to understand more about cool climate wines before you leave.
Take your memories home in a bottle.
