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 a fascinating and ultra-cool cellar door located in the picturesque hamlet of Broke that is in a word – unique!
Ex-jockey turned winemaker, David Fromberg opened his cellar door for his Running Horse Wines label in 2018 – almost two decades after he first planted vines on his family’s 56-acre property at Broke.
With such a beautiful landscape around him, David knew his cellar door had to be something special, so recruited the expertise of friend and architect David Kaunitz. The cellar door is 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.
The uniqueness of the building and quality of the wines at Running Horse Wines (David is one of the few vignerons in the region specialising in aged wines, with his range including varieties of Semillon, Verdelho, Rosé and Shiraz), lend themselves to a thoroughly unique experience for visitors.
