Brokenwood completed construction on its stunning new cellar door at the end of 2018, featuring circular tasting 'pods', an expansive outdoor terrace with views over the Hunter Valley, private tasting and dining rooms, as well as a wine museum overlooking the working barrel hall.  The impressive complex is the largest in the Hunter Valley wine region, covering 1,400 square metres.

Established in 1970, Brokenwood Wines has become one of Australia’s most reputable wine labels. Consistently listed as a 5-star winery, Brokenwood is home to the famous Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz, the highly acclaimed ILR Reserve Semillon, and the popular Cricket Pitch Range.

Also onsite, casual eatery, Cru Bar + Pantry is open for breakfast, lunch and snacks every day, serving homemade pies, toasties, wood-fired pizzas and cheese and charcuterie platters and wine by the glass or bottle; as well as sophisticated modern dining room, The Wood Restaurant, offering a contemporary fine dining experience with a strong focus on seafood.

Brokenwood joins iconic Hunter Valley winery, Audrey Wilkinson, a founding member of UWEA and ideal partner for combined experiences and wine trails in the region.

Two immersive Ultimate Winery Experiences are now available at Brokenwood:

Next, the experience continues with an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the winery to gain an insight into all aspects of winemaking, and delve deep into the history of Brokenwood Wines, before finally an opportunity to taste pre-release Brokenwood wine straight from the barrel.
