Brokenback Vineyard was planted in the mid to late 1970’s by a Rothbury Estate Syndicate led by the late Len Evans AO, OBE. Over the ensuing years the vines have produced premium wines which have been sold under a variety of labels.
The current vineyard has 50 hectares under vine, comprising Chardonnay (18.1ha), and Semillon (3.9ha) on the flat gravelled soils and Shiraz (28ha) on the eastern and western-facing slopes of the adjacent rise as well as Verdelho (2.5ha) and Tempranillo (1ha) which were planted in 2009.
Our trophy-winning wines are not just for judging, they are first and foremost for drinking! Leogate Estate aims to create wines of excellent quality which can be enjoyed now or laid down for an enhanced tasting experience.
We produce classic Hunter Valley wines such as Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz as well as blends, Rose, Frizzante and low alcohol options.
