Love and lifestyle is very much at the soul of the Mount Macedon Winery story, which starts with Dylan and Elisha.
With Dylan employed in the city and Elisha in the Yarra Valley, the young couple always had big dreams of trading the hustle and bustle of the city for the greener pastures of the country. In 2015, Dylan and Elisha did just that, with the purchase of MMW.
After being closed for several years, Dylan and Elisha put everything they had into restoring the property and reopening its doors once again in Summer of 2016. With rustic country charm, Mount Macedon Winery has captured the hearts of many as a wedding venue, a weekend getaway, or a must see for lunch and a glass of wine.
Creating a rustic wedding retreat was not a far stretch for either Dylan or Elisha. Dylan spent his childhood on a hobby farm in North Eastern Victoria, and always had an affinity with the native Australian bush and rural lifestyle.
Elisha spent much of her career working in the wedding industry. Firstly running her own engagement ring consultancy business, before working in the Yarra Valley at the award winning wedding venue, Zonzo Estate. It was Elisha’s extensive experience and passion for helping to create dream weddings, that lead Dylan and Elisha to turn MMW into a country wedding and function venue.
Along with the picturesque views and relaxed nature, Mount Macedon Winery is many things.
MMW is a farm, a winery, a restaurant, a superb wedding venue, a dedicated corporate function venue, peaceful accommodation for a weekend getaway, and so much more.
Dylan and Elisha ensure that guests and visitors experience hearty seasonal menus, while supporting farmers and the local community. From pasture to plate, you can expect talented chefs delivering an array of flavours and dishes to suit every season.
Together, Dylan and Elisha have always loved cooking food, excellent wine, and the company of family and friends. These simple values are important to them, so you can trust that Mount Macedon Winery is the perfect place to soak up the relaxed atmosphere with your loved ones on your wedding day or special occasion.
“There is a little voice inside everyone that has thought about leaving the hustle and bustle behind and dropping everything for their own piece of paradise. Somewhere that they’ll find beauty, laughter, inner peace and genuine happiness. That’s what Mount Macedon Winery is for us, and that’s what we want it to be for others. No matter what part of the world you’re from, farming is in your heritage, and there’s something pretty special about that. Most people can appreciate country life, its beauty and the primal feeling you get when in nature. We aim to connect people with that feeling every time they visit Mount Macedon Winery.”
