Located in the foothills of the Hunter Valley’s Brokenback Ranges, Brokenwood was originally zoned as a cricket ground for the local community before being acquired by three self-professed weekend winemakers in 1970.
Tony Albert, John Beeston and James Halliday were Sydney-based solicitors looking for somewhere to pursue a wine hobby when they established Brokenwood, the first vintage of which was picked in 1973.
The ‘Graveyard Vineyard’ was the vacant lot next door, named so because council planners originally designated it (but never utilized it), as a cemetery. So it too was acquired by Brokenwood in 1978 and remains the sole source of grapes for the label’s flagship Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz. Similarly, in 1982 Brokenwood expanded into white wine and continues to produce a classic Hunter Valley unwooded Semillon.
