Our Wines

Passing Clouds has been making wine for the people who drink it since 1974. Our wines are elegant and pure, with the focus on allowing them to express a sense of place and time.

About Us

Established in 1974 Passing Clouds has been making wines of longevity and grace for close to half a century.


Passing Clouds is fortunate to operate in both the Macedon Ranges and Bendigo. Our Estate vineyard is in Macedon and is the source of our premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay but we also work with four other growers, 3 in Bendigo and one in Port Philip, just outside the township of Kilmore.

If we do the job right, the winemaking side of things is a matter of gently guiding the fruit from vine to bottle, as we are very much of the ilk of letting the hand of god (mother nature) rather than the hand of man (winemaker) do the talking. We always have the aim creating wines that speak of the vineyards, the seasons and our particular style.

Our Story

The story begins in 1973 when Graeme Leith and Sue Mackinnon, great friends and partners, decided that they wanted even more challenges in life than were possible for them in their careers as an electrical contractor and a journalist. they wanted to brave the elements, face the challenges of the land, and like so many before them pursue the holy grail of ‘the best wine in the world’.
