Winmark Wines has a long history as one of the best Hunter Valley vineyards. It was established long ago in the premium soils of the Broke Fordwich area originally as the renowned Pooles Rock vineyard, possibly known as the best hunter valley vineyard of its time. The 130 acre property is now home to 28 acres of premium chardonnay vines nestled below Yellow Rock and capturing the mountain breezes and spectacular views.
After a prosperous period of producing Pooles Rock wines, the property was sold and was left neglected for five years before Karin Adcock purchased the estate and lovingly restored the property and vines back to their premium status under the brand of Winmark Wines (‘Winmark”’ in Karin’s native Danish means “Fields of Wines”).
With a rich viticultural history dating back to 1972, the former Pooles Rock property continues its remarkable revival under Karin Adcock. Together with the highly skilled team of wine experts, Viticulturalist Liz Riley, Vineyard Manager Dave Grosser, international wine consultant John Belsham along with Xanthe Hatcher in the winery, who lend their expertise to Winmark Wines ensuring the road from the vines to the glass is optimised.
The Winmark Wines hunter valley vineyard is again demonstrating its long held tradition of producing beautiful Hunter Valley Chardonnay.
Winmark Wines have converted the former Pooles Rock storage sheds into their new yet authentic Cellar Door ensuring the history of the property is cherished.
The space connects the working 28 acre vineyard with a beautifully designed place nestled into the sandstone surrounds to enjoy and showcase the Winmark Chardonnays.
