Lunch in the Hunter Valley

Long leisurely lunches are a must-do in Broke Fordwich. Margan, Mount Broke and Nightingale offer views over the vines and options to dine inside or out.

Love the fresh air? Grab a picnic and find a spot amongst the vines; order a Stomp Wines picnic and challenge family and friends to a game of giant jenga or bocce; cook your own BBQ in the Orchard at Ascella Organic Wines; grab a takeaway from the local store ; enjoy a country pub meal at the Cockfighter's Tavern in Bulga.

Looking for something light that pairs perfectly with your wines? Relax with a cheese platter at Krinklewood Biodynamic Vineyard, Ascella Organic Wines, Stomp Wines or a range of platters at Whispering Brook.
