“Take a trip down the road less travelled to the Broke Fordwich region and discover the more tranquil side of one of Australia’s oldest winemaking regions.
When you think of Hunter Valley wine country, the first place that usually springs to mind is Pokolbin. But if you’re looking to hop off the traditional wine tasting trail and take the road less travelled, why not head 15 minutes west into the foothills of Brokenback Ranges and discover some of the best kept secrets in the Hunter.
These days, Broke Fordwich is home to 35 grape growers and 17 stunning cellar doors, which produce premium quality varietals including the popular Semillon, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Verdelho as well as the more exotic Sangiovese, Barbera, Fiano, Arneis, Dolce and Tempranillo. These boutique establishments are predominantly located throughout the area’s two main villages of Broke and Bulga, and the smaller neighbouring communities of Fordwich and Milbrodale. In celebration of what this region has to offer, the Broke Fordwich Wine Tourism Association has newly launched the official Broke Fordwich Wine Trail, a unique experience that gives visitors the opportunity to meet the families behind the wineries, taste limited run wines, and go behind the scenes of working family farms.”
