There's never been a better time to get acquainted with the top-notch wineries located right here in Melbourne's own backyard. And that's especially the case given that a slew of Macedon Ranges-based cellar doors are coming together to showcase their finest drops for the next edition of the Summertime Fling Festival.

From Saturday, January 8–Sunday, January 30, wineries right across this cool-climate wine-growing region will throw open their doors to deliver a jam-packed program of wine, food and music events for all palates. Escape the city to unwind with some live jazz at Kyneton Ridge Estate (January 9 and 16) or head to Cleveland Winery to play petanque while sipping pinot among the vines (multiple dates).

Parkside Winery and Farm is hosting a series of breezy, sparkling-filled brunch sessions (January 9, 16 and 23), Gisborne Peak is serving up a riesling-matched seafood fiesta (January 22) and Hesket Estate invites you for a sumptuous Italian lunch feast in its stunning Cellar Door Pavilion (January 29).

And with stacks more live music, masterclasses, tours, feasts and tastings among this broad-ranging lineup, it seems the Macedon Ranges might be just the fling you're looking for this summer.
