Established long ago in the premium soils of the Broke Fordwich wine region, the former Pooles Rock vineyard was possibly known as the best hunter valley vineyard of its time.
For half a century, this site has grown exceptional fruit, with a proud history of producing highly acclaimed Chardonnay. In acknowledgement of this, Winmark Wines has devoted the entire estate to the development of the Queen of White Wine - Chardonnay.
The 130 acre property is now home to 30 acres of premium Chardonnay vines, a new Cellar Door, a curated Art Gallery and an extraordinary Sculpture Walk.
Visit Winmark wines to taste premium Chardonnay, peruse paintings and sculptures, and connect with the magnificence of nature.
Winmark Wines is devoted to crafting distinctive single vineyard Chardonnay.
Pooles Rock, named after former convict Richard Poole, is a local landmark visible from the Wollombi Road. English-born Poole was one of the first settlers to enjoy the property. He climbed into a hollow inside the rock to bed down each night. His story is the first chapter in the vineyard’s storybook.
This stunning garden, created by renowned landscape architect Paul Bangay OAM, incorporates a myriad of delicate colours and varieties. Roses nestle beside plants such as topiary and amongst geraniums, lavender and four types of sage. Enjoy the garden in the shade of the pavilion while sipping tea or a glass of wine.
David Ball observed forms in nature to create Biosis for Winmark. The monumental sculpture is bound to the earth yet reaches for the heavens.
