  • So a friend worked at this vineyard picking grapes and had a horrible experience where the manager shouted at her for drinking water! So of course i had to stop in and check out the place. $5 wine tasting is well worth the money. Some very nice wines to try and a variety of about 12 wines if i remember correctly. Red, whites and dessert wines available to taste. Big shout out to Mandi (i hope i remembered her name correctly). Very knowledgeable, was very chatty and informative and was juggling many groups at once. Top notch service on her behalf. Went above and beyond! So in short bad to work for (atleast for grape picking) but good wine and customer service. Would be better to know it was a wholesome good experience from picking to buying but alas apparently not.
  • The lovely lady who has worked there for 7 years was so knowledgeable and amazing with wine. Everyone should defiantly try the single vintage tasting. Such great value and we left with some fantastic wines. Thank you so much. I will be sending everyone from Brisbane your way.
  • Brokenwood wine tasting was a very personal and informative experience. Fraiah was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our interests. The experience was amazing. She even made the extra effort of using the analogy of freshly cut grass (for the best of the best at grass cutting) to describe the different wines. I highly recommend Brokenwood!!
  • I don't believe in spreading negativity however the experience here was close to torture. We paid for the single vineyard tasting, 3 times the price, and everything we tasted was close to unpalatable for me and everyone in our 11 person group.. The staff were nonchalant and promised that the white wines were being served warm because that is "how they are judged in Australia". Being passive and student when in this wine tasting mode we tried a few whilst going along with this nonesense. We then asked why could we not enjoy the white wines as we would at home, chilled. A couple of bottle of semi chilled wines came out but the incredible acid levels was hideous throughout. I cannot imagine why anyone would buy anything from here as it was really repellent. Shocking is the only word that sums it up for me!
  • Friendly staff, great red wine, especially hunter valley shiraz and cabernet were very good! staff explained about wines with clear english for foreign tourists, we enjoyed well. we hope to buy broken wood wines in stores in Japan, Hokkaido.
