Brokenwood Wines is one of Australia's most reputable premium wine labels and a must-visit while you're in the Hunter Valley. Consistently listed as a five-star winery, Brokenwood is home to the famous Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz, the highly acclaimed ILR Reserve Semillon, and the popular Cricket Pitch Range.
Designed by Sydney-based architecture design company Villa + Villa, Brokenwood's stunning new Cellar Door is the largest in the Hunter Valley wine region. Tastings are conducted in a large room in circular tasting 'pods' or in one of two private members tasting rooms.
The complex boasts an expansive outdoor terrace that offers stunning views and a wine museum that overlooks their working barrel hall and a lounge area.
Brokenwood also offers bespoke wine and food tasting experiences which includes an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of their winery and Barrel Hall.
For a more relaxed dining experience, why not try the Cru Bar and Pantry which is open seven days for lunch.
