Gisborne Peak Winery

After our tour of Living Legends and visit to Woodlands Homestead, it was on to Gisborne Peak’s Mawarra Vineyard in the Macedon Ranges wine region. Gisborne Peak Winery is situated on the north-eastern side of Mt. Gisborne in Victoria, at an altitude of 550 metres, and produces cool climate wines. The first Riesling grapes were planted here in 1978 as a hobby. But over the years the ‘hobby’ has grown, and now covers nearly 13.5 acres, and also includes Pinot Noir, Semillon, and Chardonnay grapes.
At Gisborne Peak I had the best wine tasting I have ever experienced. Not only did we get to taste some very good wines, but were also shown how to actually do it, what to look for, and how to smell and taste the wine; so next time I take part in a wine tasting, I might actually look like I know what I am doing!
