A PLACE TO CONNECT Spanning 130 breathtaking acres, Winmark is not just a premium Chardonnay producer but a destination in Broke, Hunter Valley.
Winmark Wines has a long history. It was established long ago in the premium soils of the Broke Fordwich area originally as the renowned Pooles Rock vineyard, possibly known as the best hunter valley vineyard of its time.
For half a century, this site has grown exceptional fruit, with a proud history of producing highly acclaimed Chardonnay. In acknowledgement of this, Winmark Wines has devoted the entire estate to the Queen of white wine.
The 130 acre property is now home to 30 acres of premium chardonnay vines nestled below Yellow Rock and capturing the mountain breezes and spectacular views.
After a prosperous period of producing Pooles Rock wines, the property was sold and this little gem of a hunter valley vineyard was left neglected for five years before Karin Adcock purchased the estate and lovingly restored the property and vines back to their premium status under the brand of Winmark Wines (‘Winmark”’ in Karin’s native Danish means “Fields of Wines”).
The blocks were carefully replaced with French root stock to supplement the reputation the vineyard had. The vines grow in well-drained, rich soil over a gravel/shale base. It is a must see on your hunter valley vineyards tour list.
The property’s remarkable revival continues under Karin Adcock, together with the highly skilled team of wine experts, Viticulturalist Liz Riley, International wine consultant John Belsham along with Xanthe Hatcher in the winery, who lend their expertise to Winmark Wines ensuring the road from the vines to the glass is optimised.
The Winmark Wines hunter valley vineyard is again demonstrating it’s long held tradition of producing beautiful Hunter Valley Chardonnay.
The new Winmark Cellar Door overlooks the working vineyard and is a beautifully designed place to enjoy and showcase the Winmark Chardonnays.
The Winmark Wines cellar door is open Monday to Wednesday 11am – 4pm and Friday to Sunday, from 10am - 5pm.
The Winmark Art Gallery is located alongside the Cellar Door, connecting art nature and wine when visiting the Vineyard. Karin has always been a passionate art collector and has now been able to realise a long held dream of curating a gallery introducing some of the amazing Artists and Sculptors she has discovered. The Sculpture Walk is a wonderful opportunity to explore the property to find spectacular sculptures reaching for the sky, whimsical installations and sculptures inspired by the Australian bush set against the natural landmarks of historical significance.
Winmark offers four beautiful properties, each fully renovated with an artful eye transforming it into one of the area’s premier destinations. Each of the guesthouses showcase their unique character and hold furnishings and artworks sourced from around the globe, and all make the most of the breathtaking mountain and vineyard views.
