Hanging Rock Winery Location
Located near Mount Helen in the Macedon Ranges, Hanging Rock Winery. The ‘Jim Jim’ as the site is known, is the location of an extinct volcano with deep soils and excellent water supplies. This is a very cool climate site in what is known as the coolest grape growing region in Australia. The winery is 620 metres above seal level.
Hanging Rock Wine Types
Hanging Rock Winery makes three sparkling wines – an LD, a Rose and an NV brut cuvee. White grapes include the noble varieties, but Marsanne and Viognier are also produced. Red grapes run the list of noble varieties.
Hanging Rock Brands
