Content: Zig Zag Wines
As one of the oldest vineyards in the Macedon Ranges, planted over 40 years ago, the non-irrigated vines at Zig Zag Winery produce unique flavours recognised as some of the best in this cool climate region.
Drawing on the rich, volcanic soil, and the hot days and cool nights, you can taste and buy Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Rose (Shiraz), Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet/Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and (last but not least) Sparkling Shiraz.
The winery also serves up cheese and meat platters (order ahead) if you want to sit out on the cellar door veranda to enjoy the birdlife and the dappled light, and take some time to enjoy the experience.
Situated on top of Zig Zag Road, with views of the vineyard below and Belltopper forest across, this is a gem of a place to try and buy fantastic wine, meet the wine maker and support a lovely, local and sustainable producer.
The cellar door is open Thursday through to Monday, 10:00am to 5:00pm.
