Birthday Villa Vineyard

Victoria | Macedon Ranges

Our Review

The Birthday Villa name comes from the 19th-century Birthday Mine at nearby Drummond discovered on Queen Victoria's birthday. Gewurztraminer (1.5ha) was planted in 1962; cabernet sauvignon (0.5ha) followed later. The quality of the gewürztraminer comes as no surprise, as the very cool climate is suited to the variety. On the other hand, the cabernet sauvignon comes as a major surprise, although cool vintages provide a challenge. -JAMES HALLIDAY
