Onwards and upwards at Passing Clouds


The team at Passing Clouds in the Macedon Ranges has unveiled plans for a new dining space where guests can "share food, wine and stories". 

Passing Clouds is located at Musk, a hamlet just a short drive from Daylesford, and has been producing wines since 1974 and hosting food experiences since 2015.

The dining room at Passing Clouds has been described as having a vibe that feels like “coming over to a friends for lunch”.  The food, in my experience, is excellent.

The newly renovated dining area overlooks the estate's cool climate chardonnay and pinot noir vineyards and will offer private dining options for six or more guests. 

The kitchen has been given and upgrade, as has the menu, with head chef Cameron McKenzie given more space and new equipment after seven years cooking over a firepit. 

Guests are encouraged to participate in a personalised wine tasting - with a new wine tasting space outside that allows them to taste the premium cool climate wines of the estate and Bendigo wines that the Leith family has been producing for almost half a century. 

Burgundy trained head winemaker Cameron Leith and his wife Marion moved towards biodynamics and regenerative agricultural practices five years ago. 

From May, the Passing Clouds Dining Room will serve lunch from noon Thursday-Monday with the new space available for groups. 

The cellar door is open seven days a week from 10am. See
