Overview
More
The Hanging Rock Winery was established in 1983 in the Macedon Ranges (Australia’s Coolest grape growing region), one hour drive from Melbourne, Victoria. The property was purchased by John & Ann Ellis who between them already had around 30 years industry of experience. Their aim was to make Australia’s best sparkling wine. Many who should know, believe that they have achieved this with their Macedon NV Brut L.D. Whilst they decided to build the dream in the Macedon Ranges their other passion has always been Heathcote as an outstanding Shiraz growing region. In 1994 they, and co-owner Athol Guy (of ‘Seekers’ fame), planted the ‘Athol’s Paddock’ Vineyard to produce the now iconic ‘Heathcote Shiraz’. Since then Hanging Rock has produced 2 other Heathcote Shiraz’s to showcase the styles the region can produce. The Hanging Rock Winery selects premium grapes from areas of Victoria best suited to that particular variety, as a result we have a wide range of wines to suit most styles and tastes.

No ambience at all and no engagement from the server for wine tasting. He is kind, but offers no direction nor insight on any tasting at all, much less the four labels sold there. Quite skippable.

This is such a lovely spot for wine tasting. The wines were excellent, and the view of Hanging Rock makes a magnificent back drop. The person conducting the wine tasting was very knowledgable of the wines.

Hanging Rock is an amazing place, but the winery of the same name is pretty average. Wines are nowhere near the quality of the wines we tried at Armstead Wines just outside of Heathcoat, Victoria. The person presenting the wine tasting gave off the suggestion...More

Hi Lewis, Thank you very much for your enquiry. I'm afraid we haven't had accommodation here for nearly 10 years. To make it worse, the people who bought it are now using it as their home, so it is no longer accommodation... More
