Broke

Just 20 minutes from Singleton and 10 minutes from Pokolbin the Broke Fordwich area is in the southwest corner of the mid Hunter Valley. Sitting between Pokolbin and Wollombi, Broke played a critical role in the development and history of NSW. Today Broke Fordwich is still making history. In 1994 it was the first area formally recognised as a separate viticultural sub-region of the Hunter Valley.

While, historically, it is one of the oldest wine growing areas in Australia, it is only in the last 30 years that Broke Fordwich has started to become an important player in the Australian winemaking industry. As importantly, in contrast with other wine producing areas, Broke Fordwich retains its integrity as a rural community remaining free of large scale development yet offering first class B&B and self catering accommodation, restaurants ans activities.

With the massive Brokenback Range Yellow Rock escarpment standing guard above, the village of Broke is well worth a visit. Many experts tip the area to be the 'next big thing', particularly with the success of verdelho and merlot varieties in the Broke area. There are around 50 individual vineyards as well as vines managed by major wine producers.
