Brokenwood Wines was set up in 1970 and is now 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 Ranges. The land was for a cricket stadium, but it became a vineyard. In 1975, a new winery was set up to increase their production. Six new partners joined them in 1978 and bought the nearby Graveyard Vineyard. The winery’s flagship product is the Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz that still grows entirely in this vineyard. In 1982, the winery started the production of white wines. In 2003, the winery’s Semillon won the Trophy for Best Australian White Wine and the Best International Dry White.

The clayey soil results in low yield of grapes but of very high quality and a distinct flavor. The new barrel shed of the winery, built in 2004, allows proper and high-quality controlled maturation of their red and white wines. The winery approximately produces almost 1,000,000 bottles of wine every year. The main varieties of grapes that grow here include the Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Rosato, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, and the 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. It also has an education space dedicated to the long-serving late manager, Keith Barry.
