Macedon Ranges council chief executive Margot Stork, Andrea Knight and Macedon MP Mary-Anne Thomas

A Macedon Ranges wine company is being featured in Hong Kong and China.

Baynton’s Andrea Knight is in Asia presenting wines from her Macedon Ranges vineyard Granite Hills to the international market.

Ms Knight is travelling with her distributor, Jeson Cheng from Jor Wines, introducing the wines to influential Chinese importers, distributors, wholesalers and media.

“We are really excited to present our wines to this market,” Ms Knight said.

“Our Granite Hills gruner veltliner and Granite Hills pinot noir have been selected for VIP events in Hong Kong and Shanghai.”

The business is participating in the roadshow thanks to $7775 from the Wine Growth Fund.

Macedon MP Mary-Anne Thomas said the government was supporting wineries such as Granite Hills so Victoria’s businesses could remain competitive and world-class in local and export markets.

“Granite Hills makes a fantastic drop, which is indicative of the rich wine and food industry that hails from here in the Macedon Ranges,” Ms Thomas said.

Granite Hills has been producing wine for 40 years.

The 12-hectare vineyard grows riesling, chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, shiraz, gamay, pinot blanc and malbec.
