BROKENWOOD WINES CELLAR DOOR
One of Australia’s best-known and enjoyed wine labels will soon open its new Hunter Valley cellar door designed by Villa+Villa. At 40+ years young, Brokenwood Wines has as its mission statement ‘To make great wines and have fun’. The new cellar door will reflect that positive attitude, celebrating the synergy between wine and food. The old cellar door was part of the original winery, built in 1975 when the label was founded. The new, purpose-built cellar door taking its place will feature a bold and earthy mix of corten steel, stone, timber and glass, with rustic timber palettes used as screens and balustrades, and a lookout providing views over the winery and surrounding countryside. Inside, service pods will allow tasting ‘in the round’, while two private dining rooms will cater for functions. Outside, a casual seating area will tempt visitors to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun.
