Kyneton Ridge Estate Winery was established in the 1990’s by the Boucher and Russell families, after a long search to find the perfect property.
The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blocks were planted in 1997, and the fruit harvested from these vineyards is used to make our signature wines. Fruit is also sourced from our trusted growers to make Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Estate was purchased by the Wood family, and will continue to be a family run winery, along with the Ridge Café, and the Ridge ArtSpace. In 2020, we will be embarking on renovations to the winery and cellar door, which will ultimately add to the overall Kyneton Ridge Estate experience.
Kyneton Ridge is a cool climate vineyard, with granitic soil and good rainfall, which is ideal for Pinot Noir growth. Our vineyard is farmed with the use of organic compost and biodynamic principles without the use of chemical pesticides or herbicides. Our vines are hand pruned, and the fruit is hand picked to ensure only the best grapes are used in our winemaking.
Kyneton Ridge produce fine wines featuring Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Macedon Sparkling Pinot Noir Chardonnay, Sparkling Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
Kyneton Ridge Cellar Door
All wines are available for tasting and purchase at our vineyard cellar door. We are open on weekends from 11.00am to 5.00pm, and most public holidays. We are open on weekdays by appointment. Buses by appointment only.
We are a dog friendly winery – outside only due to government regulations, and they must be on a lead. We also welcome visitors on horseback or bicycle for those who would like to ride to the winery.
The Ridge Café
The Ridge Café has magnificent views across the Macedon Ranges, and provides a relaxed atmosphere where friends and family can meet and enjoy a contemporary, seasonal menu designed to complement our fine table wines. Our focus is on homemade fresh food that can be shared, and we serve great coffee and desserts.
We have a resident herd of wild kangaroos, which make regular appearances in the nearby paddocks, much to the delight of our international visitors.
Located in the Café, The Ridge Artspace provides established and emerging artists an opportunity to exhibit their work in a casual gallery setting. Please check our Facebook page for more information about current exhibitions. Artists interested in exhibiting at Ridge Artspace should contact Angela Wood: firstname.lastname@example.org
