These are the little gems that haven’t been overrun with booze buses and weekend tourists. If you consider yourself a wine connoisseur, it is suggested you get on the next budget flight to these secret wine regions before it is too late.

Broke Fordwich, NSW – This little wine region, just outside the Hunter Valley in NSW, is packed full of old-school country charm.

It is the kind of place where a local will invite you over for a cup of tea, kids run along the charming roads giggling and the fresh air soothes away the city stress.

An easy two-hour drive out of Sydney, the area is becoming known for its charming restaurants, delicious wines and mind-blowing scenery.

The drop of choice in this sleeping town is Verdelho and Shiraz. Natural wines are making their mark here too, especially the organic wines coming out of Ascella vineyard and biodynamic options from Krinklewood. So grab some olives at Whispering Brook, a bottle of your favourite wine and settle down with the backdrop of Brokenback Mountain Ranges for a rural experience like no other.”
