Nestled amidst rolling hills in the beautiful Macedon Ranges of Victoria, Glen Erin at Lancefield is a charming historic property offering 4½ star boutique accommodation. While the heritage and natural attractions ensure it’s an ideal destination for wedding parties, conference groups or anyone looking for an idyllic escape, the culinary delights and country hospitality are yet another reason to make a trip to this renowned corner of Victoria.

Functions for everyone
Glen Erin at Lancefield has a range of function rooms and we’ll happily help you create just the mood you’re after, be it an intimate dinner, a corporate cocktail affair or formal dinner for up to 180 guests.
We specialise in themed experiences and have created incredible, memorable nights such as a stargazers dinner, where guests dined al fresco on the vineyard lawns and viewed the sky through large diameter telescopes; and a winemaker dinner where guests met and were entertained by our resident winemaker – a hit with wine buffs. Other themes have included music game shows; cook offs with our professional chefs, and murder mystery evenings.
With our own vineyard on site, no visit is complete without a trip to our cellar door. The Macedon Ranges produces exceptional cold-climate wines, and highlights of our range include our crisp, light and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc. We also specialise in hearty reds including Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, ideal when curled up by a blazing fire on chilly evenings.
Our wines are available only in the restaurant and at the cellar door, so a visit is a must. The Cellar Door is open 10am to 5pm on weekends or you are more than welcome to bring your group midweek by appointment.
