Granite Hillls

Llew Knight

This family owned vineyard and winery is situated on the North Eastern aspect of the Macedon Ranges. Trail blazers of cool climate viticulture, Granite Hills is perched atop the spectacular boulder strewn hills of the Great Dividing Range at an altitude of 550 meters. Established in 1970 by fourth generation farmers Gordon and Heather Knight, this 12 hectare vineyard planted to a wide range of varietals including Riesling, Gruner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay is now run by their son Llew Knight and wife Andrea.

Llew’s father Gordon began his life in Macedon as a wool farmer but found it tough to rely purely on wool to support his family. Wine became a great passion of Gordon and his son Llew as they now have 50+year old vineyards to work with. To put their history into perspective, Granite Hills predates even iconic producers like Bindi by over 10 years.
