I was surprised with a Red Balloon voucher for my birthday to Gisborne Peak Winery.
This gorgeous winery is located in the Macedon Ranges.
Our voucher included a three course meal plus wine tasting and a bottle of Gisborne Peak’s wine.
When we arrived be began our wine tasting, Jake one of the lovely employee’s, talked us through the different blends, told us a few stories about the winery and took the time to answer our grape-harvesting questions.
We chose a bottle of the Sparking Wine and I also bought an additional bottle; their Allegra, plus I bought a glass (or two) to enjoy with lunch.
Starters was a platter of meats, dips and warmed Turkish bread.
For main I chose a pesto and prawn pizza and Jordan enjoyed a chicken pizza. The pizza is literally cooked right in front of you as they use a big stone pizza oven which is just outside the restaurant.
Before we moved onto our dessert we decided to take a walk around the winery, we were stuffed.
We did a bit of frolicking through the vines, it was just gorgeous. Small bunches were just beginning to form on the vines, the air was fresh and the sky was slightly blue. We had visited on quite a humid day so we were comfortable in just light clothing, and we took some fun photos.
Dessert was sweet & satisfying, I had cheesecake, I can never go past cheesecake and Jordan picked the lemon meringue. YUM!
I finished the meal with a soy latte.
I had such a beautiful time at Gisborne Peak Winery, the food was filling and well made, the staff were friendly and welcoming and the scenery was very picturesque. It was fun to do something different, road trip for a lovely lunch and celebrate my birthday.
Owners Bob and Barb must be so proud of what they have achieved and how hard they have worked on this little gem in the Macedon Ranges. It’s truly well worth the visit.
