Our Review

Once an offspring of Werribee Park and its grand mansion, Shadowfax is now very much its own master. It has 10ha of mature vineyards at Werribee; plus 5ha of close-planted pinot noir, 5ha of chardonnay and 2ha of pinot gris at the Little Hampton Vineyard in Macedon; and 3ha of pinot noir, 2ha of chardonnay and 1ha of gewurztraminer elsewhere in Macedon. Alister Timms, with degrees in science (University of Melbourne) and oenology (University of Adelaide) became chief winemaker in '17 (replacing long-serving winemaker Matt Harrop). Exports to the UK, the US and China.

About

A boutique winery in the heart of Werribee Park, dedicated to producing quality, handcrafted wines that express the characteristics of the vineyards in which they were grown. Shadowfax’s wines have a strong focus on regionality with the majority of its fruit produced from its vineyards in the Macedon Ranges and Werribee, and other small growers in Geelong and the Pyrenees. Each and every vineyard has its own distinct characteristics and produces grapes of only the highest quality. Open every day from 11am, Shadowfax offers wine tastings, cellar door sales and delicious lunches including antipasti, cheese, pastas and wood fired pizzas. Live music is presented every Saturday and Sunday from 12pm - 3pm.
