Budburst Wine Festival

Budburst is back with a fresh, new flavour 17 - 19 November.
Macedon Ranges, VIC, Australia

Discover the cool wines and warm hearts of Macedon Ranges winemakers at their annual wine festival, Budburst, this spring from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 November 2023.

Budburst is a once-a-year opportunity to step behind the vines and meet the family-owned and small-batch makers who shape mainland Australia’s coolest wine region. The Friday evening will see local venues showcase Macedon Ranges wine alongside other great produce of the region bringing together what they believe to be the best of the Macedon Ranges.

Across the weekend, more than 25 Macedon Ranges winemakers will open their wineries and cellar doors to wine enthusiasts.

From 10am and 5pm Saturday and Sunday, you can enjoy wine tastings, curated food menus championing local produce, art shows, sculptor walks and live music. Explore at your own pace or jump on one of the Budburst bus routes. This year Budburst will run smaller buses to more wineries, delivering participants directly to cellar doors around the Macedon Ranges.

Additional details will be released soon. Festival and bus tickets are on sale from 1 September (early bird until 30 September).
