Mount Broke Wines
All the wines available for tasting at our cellar door sales are from grapes grown on the property. The cellar door is next to the vineyard with views across the vines to the river and mountains beyond. All our wines offered for tasting are ready to drink now, but we are quite prepared to cellar some of the more exceptional vintages until it they close to their peak, then release these as a matured version. Our production is tiny: perhaps 800 cases in a good season down closer to 200 when the weather doesn't cooperate. For this reason alone we restrict sales to the cellar door - these wines are not available in the shops.

It is nestled in a tranquil valley only 1.5 kilometres from Historic Wollombi Village.The building was drawn to compliment the existing heritage values of the Undercliff Estate. The external slab walls superbly set off the cedar cathedral ceilings and the exhibited paintings. The wine making equipment was built specifically as was the 6 metre table used for vintage lunches and other functions.

More recently other grape varieties have been planted such as Chambourcin, Chardonnay and Muscat. We are well know for our artistic bird labels.
Wollombi Wines first vines were planted in 1994 by the Hoft family, with the assistance of ‘Nic’, a local. All the vineyard work is carried out by family members. At harvest the bunches are selectively hand picked with one intent – the best possible quality. The vineyard receives little or no watering, none since 2004, and so yields are low, usually around 2 tonnes per acre. No insecticides are used by Wollombi Wines. Wollombi Wines is a family owned and operated boutique vineyard adjoining the historic village of Wollombi, and bordered by the beautiful Wollombi Brook. Come and enjoy a cellar door tasting. Relax in the picnic area, talk to the cows. We have a BBQ available, delicious platters can be ordered, and morning tea and lunches can be organised for groups by arrangement.
Wollombi Village Vineyard
Wollombi Village Vineyard was a project created by husband & wife team Alan & Maria Roe. They purchased the vacant block in the centre of historic Wollombi in 1988 and had visions of doing 'something' to help create more interest for the tourists that often visit this little town that seems to exist in a virtual time lock. The first paddock of chardonnay vines planted in October 1996. Shiraz were planted in 1999. The idea was to keep with the traditional Hunter Valley family run vineyards, with the Mediterranean influence from Maria, who is Italian. The vineyard now produces chardonnay, shiraz & rosé wines. September 9th 2006 saw the grand opening of Wollombi Village Vineyard's Cellar Door
