Aim of the Guild

The primary aim of Wine Guild Victoria is to provide opportunities for members to develop a greater knowledge, understanding and appreciation of wine, viticulture, winemaking and the Australian wine industry in a friendly and enjoyable environment. The Guild also aims to promote friendly interaction between members and between members and wine industry professionals.



Mount Towrong Vineyard is a small family owned and operated vineyard, nestled in the Macedon Ranges in Victoria. Migrating from the Veneto region of Italy, the Cremasco family brought with a love of food and wine, and their passion continues today. George and Deirdre Cremasco began planting in 1996 with only 2 varieties – Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In 1999, they added Nebbiolo and in 2004 they planted Prosecco. Since then, their range has grown and diversified, with some alternative varieties including Ribollo Gialla, Negroamaro and Pinot Bianco. Mount Towrong’s sparkling wines include blends of Chardonnay and Nebbiolo.

Situated at 600 metres above sea level with direct views of Mount Macedon and Mount Towrong, this cool climate vineyard enjoys moderate seasonal rainfall.

Adam Paleg plays a major role in the growth and development of Mount Towrong’s portfolio. He joined the team as a viticulturist in 2011 and since 2020 has taken over the role of winemaker.

The vineyard is farmed with the use of organic composts with no pesticides or herbicides used. Winter prunings are mulched back into the mid rows. All estate-grown grapes are handpicked and the wines are expertly crafted with minimal intervention.

Their Cellar Door offers hearty, homestyle Italian cooking intentionally created to pair perfectly with Mount Towrong wines. It offers upstairs dining against a backdrop of sweeping views across the vineyard and a warm and cosy downstairs dining area.

The Mount Towrong Cellar Door is open from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm every Saturday and Sunday. Lunch is served from midday.
