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 as one of the best Hunter Valley vineyards. 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.
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 prosporous 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.
With a rich viticultural history dating back to 1972, the former Pooles Rock property continues its remarkable revival 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.
Winmark Wines have converted the former Pooles Rock wine storage sheds into their new yet authentic Winmark Cellar Door, ensuring the history of the property is cherished. The space connects the working vineyard with a beautifully designed place to enjoy and showcase the Winmark Chardonnays.
The Winmark Wines cellar door is open Friday to Sunday, from 10am - 5pm and by appointment.
