Brokenwood Wines, Superb Wines Established in 1970

Brokenwood Wines began their winemaking journey in 1970, today they are considered one of the best wine labels in Australia. A trio of Sydney solicitors, James Halliday, John Beeston, and Tony Albert, established the estate in a block in the foothills of Brokenback Mountain Range. The land was originally used as a cricket stadium, but became a vineyard after the purchase of the land. In 1975, a new winery facility was built to increase their production volumes. Six new partners joined the company in 1978 and bought the nearby Graveyard Vineyard. Brokenwood Wine’s flagship wine is the Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz grown entirely in this spectacular vineyard. In 1982, the winery expanded their offerings by beginning production of white wines. In 2003, the winery’s Semillon won the Trophy for Best Australian White Wine and the Best International Dry White.

In 2003, Brokenwood Wine’s dry Semillon won the Trophy for “”Best Australian White Wine”” and the “”Best International Dry White””.

One Million Bottles Per Year

The clay based soils of the Hunter Valley result in low yields but of very high quality with distinct flavor. The new barrel hall at Brokenwood Wines which was built in 2004, allows proper and high-quality controlled maturation of both their red and white wines. The winery approximately produces almost 1,000,000 bottles of wine every year. 

Focus on Semillon, Riesling, Shiraz, and Pinot Noir

The main varieties of grapes that are currently grown at Brokenwood Wines include Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery produces award-winning, top-quality red, white, dessert, sparkling and fortified wines.

The winery’s new cellar door is a massive complex in the Hunter Valley with an outdoor terrace, private dining and tasting rooms, and an impressive wine museum.Brokenwood Wines also has an education space dedicated to the long-serving late manager, Keith Barry. We invite you to come for a visit and explore all this lovely Australian winery has to offer.
