About the property

Stunning & Unique Rupert's Ridge, now known as Farmer Smith Estate-Pet Friendly


Rupert's Ridge Vineyard Retreat is a boutique winery in the picturesque wine-growing region of Heathcote, Victoria.

Set on 100 acres of rolling hills, located near the historic township of Redesdale, north of Melbourne, it is an escape to the country where you can walk out the door and immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of country life.

The landscape is an extraordinary example of an operating vineyard where you will also find olive, almond, fig and many other fruit trees dotted throughout the property, all blending into the park style gardens of the estate. Wander through the vineyard and enjoy the serenity of a gorgeous country property where sheep, cows and alpacas graze in the large acreage surrounding the vines.

A weekend away at Rupert's Ridge allows one to unwind in the picturesque vineyard with it's unique farm life setting and just a stone's throw from Melbourne (1 hr from Melbourne airport).

This pet friendly property is situated in the middle of all that the North Central district has to offer where 20 - 40 minutes will take you to:

Heathcote, Macedon and Bendigo region Vineyards

Mysterious Hanging Rock

Historic Castlemaine

Bendigo Art galleries and Goldfields

Kyneton's notable restaurants and great shopping

Incredible Turpins Falls in Langley

Amazing from the moment we arrived! With treats like robes, candles, Austar and a stocked fridge we felt not only relaxed, but extremely spoilt! Spa was beautiful and the view just perfect, managed to sneak a view of sunset too from the tray of the ute ;)

With escape artist sheep and nothing but picturesque scenery all around I highly recommend Chris and Johns amazing property!!

Thanks for having us and giving us the getaway we needed!!

Ps the pub down the road is great for dinner and the cafe does a great brekkie

Lovely Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Rupert's Ridge was a great weekend escape. The house itself was clean, comfortable, generously supplied and cosy!

The location is a little out of the way, but it adds to the relaxation.

Beautiful views & helpful hosts.

The only "issue" we had was that we felt the outdoor spa could have been cleaner and we were reluctant to use it.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this place :)
