A HIDDEN GEM... Running Horse Wines
What's a weekend in the Hunter Valley without finding that special place that we then take great pleasure in sharing with the world – flooding Instagram and Facebook accounts as we enthusiastically rave about our new find?
While the Hunter Valley is not short of beautiful scenery, wonderful wineries and unique wine – there is now a fascinating and ultra-cool cellar door located in the picturesque hamlet of Broke that is, in a word, unique!
Designed by architect David Kaunitz, the cellar door was constructed using six large stacked shipping containers that have been artfully repurposed with extensive use of glass to open them up to the surrounding landscape.
What's most striking about Running Horse Wines, however, is what's in the bottles. Owner David Fromberg is one of only a handful of vignerons in the region specialising in aged wines, with his range including varieties of Semillon, Verdelho, Rosé and Shiraz.
“At the cellar door, we offer vertical tastings of wines that are 12–14 years old and are still drinking wonderfully. Semillons that are 14 years old that still look like they're six years old, or Verdelho's that are the same, they just age exceptionally well," says David.
