The Whispering Brook Olive Long
Known as the tranquil side of the Hunter Valley, the Broke-Fordwich area was declared a viticultural sub-region in 1994. Rustic and set against the dramatic backdrop of the Yellow Rock escarpment, the village of Broke has become the hub of an emerging wine-growing area. The warm climate and fertile soils produce soft and distinctive wines such as semillon, shiraz, chardonnay and verdelho as well as Italian varieties such as sangiovese, barbera and dolcetto. Enjoy your own leisurely tour of the vineyards on two wheels - don't forget to book ahead to enjoy great country dining at one of Broke's restaurants or cafes.
There are plenty of things to do around Broke. Get into the saddle and set off on a horse-riding adventure or pack a picnic to go for a bushwalk along the scenic walking trails through Yengo National Park. Country drives are relaxing here so head off to nearby Wollombi, Lovedale or Maitland.
