Broke’s Promise is a small family owned vineyard and olive grove, located in the tranquil region of Broke Fordwich in Australia’s world renowned Hunter Valley. Our property is nestled between the foothills of the Yengo National park and the banks of the Wollombi Brook with an amazing view of the Brokenback Range and Yellow Rock. We specialise in handcrafting wines from some of the Hunters most renowned varieties, Semillon, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Shiraz and for something a little different a Northern Italian red variety Barbera. Our grapes are grown close to the river banks on sandy loam and basalt soil and we pay every attention to vineyard quality. The vineyard has 8 acres of vines with Chardonnay being the first variety planted in 1994 and has produced vintages since 1998 with its’ own distinctive regional style. The Barbera was planted in 1999 and produces a medium bodied aromatic style wine which is a perfect accompaniment to pasta and Mediterranean style food. More recently planted are Shiraz Read more »

  • I have a good memory and as with most people it is particularly astute when recorded painful moments in one’s life. Take for example 1994, when I finally broke into my stash of benchmark 1982 Barolo. We’re talking Marcarini, and Cascina Francia, Monprivato and Vietti. There were six bottles in all, and I carefully decanted them before cooking di... Read More

  • Following on the heels of the much lauded 2009 vintage, the 2010 Northern Rhones are being offered all over the place, with both high scores and high prices as well. A historically small crop resulted from a cool wet spring, that then enjoyed alternating periods of heat and freshness throughout the summer of 2010 producing wines that promise to ... Read More

  • So last winter, we drank a bottle of 2004 Dom de la Roquete Chateauneuf du Pape.  Delicious.  Bought it at deep discount, and wished I had bought more.  Last month, at a large dinner, someone (a beverage professional from one of SF's best restaurants) brought the 2007 of same wine, direct from Kermit Lynch, so the provenance was unquestionable. ...
