'Gisborne Peak is a labour of love for Bob and Barbara Nixon. From small beginnings as a hobby block in 1978, it has grown into the impressive vineyard that spreads out before the wide verandas of the picturesque cellar door. Taste the very good Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, perhaps as an accompaniment to pizza from Gisborne Peak's wood-fired oven.' Ralph Kyte-Powell
Boutique wines with al fresco foods. What could be better? Visit this boutique winery, try the award winning cool climate wines and enjoy a wood-fired pizza all in a most beautiful setting amongst the vines. Located only 35 minutes from Melbourne via the Calder freeway and 25 minutes from Melbourne Airport. Gisborne Peak Wines sells estate grown wines as well as full-bodied reds from warmer climates.
A large deck set over the water provides the perfect al-fresco setting for enjoying a glass of wine with some simple but delicious food available at the cellar door.

'My Vine' Adopt-a-Vine Program
This is a fun, quirky but very educational program that let's you be a vigneron without investing millions of dollars. Adopt-a-Vine at Gisborne Peak Winery and learn more about the vine-to-wine process. Hands-On days throughout the year allow you to work on a season activity in the vineyard, ending with a wood-fired pizza and wine lunch! The Adoption is for three years and there are plenty of benefits, including a very generous 25 per cent off wines purchased through our cellar door. First notification of cellar door events, specials and more, plus pictures of your vine throughout the year too. The Adoption Kit includes an Adoption Certificate, a picture of your vine with your hang-tag on it, and lots of information. It is a perfect gift for that wine-lover in your life. The Adoption Kit can be sent to you to give to your special person or sent directly to the Adoptive Parent. Parents have visiting rights - we're open seven days a week! Visit the Adopt-a-Vine website for further information.
Staying at a winery has it's own magic about it. Staying at Gisborne Peak Winery is very magical because the eco-cottages are totally off the electricity grid, with power being supplied by the Macedon Ranges sunshine and the winds of the region. Don't worry, there is always back-up supply. Our one-bedroom cottages sleep two people which is perfect for a getaway. Visit the cellar door, walk the property for some exercise or even help out with seasonal vineyard activities. Self-contained, limited but adequate cooking facilities and beautiful views!
