Winmark Wines, formerly Pooles Rock, in picturesque Broke, located in the Hunter Valley, has recently been completely renovated and refurbished. The estate comprises 130 acres with 28 acres under premium chardonnay vines.


Our guests enjoy this unique winery accommodation, that features the monumental sculpture, ‘Biosis’, by renowned sculptor David Ball, a stunning perennial and rose garden by leading landscape designer Paul Bangay (OAM), a sandstone fire pit by the dam, two private tennis courts and pools, and is home to the legendary rock ‘Pooles Rock’, named after the convict Richard Poole, who slept in the rock’s hollow.

Winmark Residence


Winmark Residence Hunter Valley accommodation is at the heart of this impressive estate. Every aspect of this grand house is designed to provide luxury and comfort, for an indulgent weekend getaway or executive rental.


Owner Karin Adcock’s love of interiors and travel is represented into every corner of the estate. Asian antiquities sit beside Aboriginal artwork along with indigineous African artefacts. Every item, from the aromatherapy toiletries and luxury towels to the Wedgewood crockery and plush lounges, chairs and beds, have been selected to welcome guests in comfort and welcome.


The ‘Africa Room’, with its tribal drums and skins and vineyard memorabilia, is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors to showcase the panoramic views of the vineyard and distant mountains, and can be opened up in summer or comfortably enjoyed, in the depths of winter thanks to our insulative glass windows that keep the warmth in, but still allow amazing views of the surrounds.


The intricate stonework in the indoor and outdoor fireplaces is aesthetically beautiful and truly adds to the ambience of the room. The outdoor alfresco area is enclosed by wisteria that entwine the pergola and a view of the vines, gardens, private pool and private tennis court in this stunning hunter valley accommodation.


An open-plan living space incorporates two generous lounge areas, a dining room and executive kitchen. Unlike many other hunter valley accommodation estates, Winmark Wines offers four bedrooms, all with en-suites plus a powder room and can sleep eight.


Due to the nature of the property and open dams, children under the age of 8 are not recommended at the winery accommodation.


Villa Vino

Villa Vino is the newest addition to Winmark Wines Estate, perfect for those seeking the intimacy of tiny space living, located between the working vineyard and large estate dam. The divinely designed ‘villa’ is framed by windows allowing the views to be fully embraced. Sip Winmark Chardonnay in the cosy outdoor area firepit whilst soaking in the views across the vineyard and the setting sun on the mountains. A shared pool is available close by for cooling down on those warm days.


Spend the night under the pitched roofline, with a simple yet stylish open room with queen bed – a room for two. An outdoor luxury camp kitchen with pizza oven, microwave oven, BBQ w. cooktop and fridge allows you to cook a romantic candlelit dinner, with the stars the only distraction (please do liberally apply our Mozzie repellent – with the great outdoors come insects!)


An ensuite bathroom pod has been installed right next to Villa Vino for your comfort. A coffee pod machine and tea and toast making facilities will see you sipping coffee whilst the kangaroos nibble on nearby grass. With the Broke Fordwich Wine Trail literally at your doorstep, this is a getaway that provides the perfect combination of viewing a working vineyard and enjoying a tiny retreat.


*Please note there are occasions when machinery is operating in the vineyard, or work vehicles may pass by Villa Vino to tend to the property.


Rock View

Secluded Rock View is perched above Pooles Rock and provides a spacious country home that is perfect for families and groups of gathering friends. There is an emphasis on space, comfort and function and on communing with the bush setting, whilst being surrounded by kangaroos, wallabies, kookaburras and other native fauna.


Rock View accommodation is positioned near the vegetable patch. Guests are encouraged to fossick and enjoy eating the fresh vegetables from the gardens.


Rock View has five bedrooms with 2.5 bathrooms and sleeps 10. The adjoining living areas with an open fireplace and kitchen are perfect for a winter night in, whilst the outdoor alfresco area with its 10-seater dining table is very popular in the warmer months. Guests can cook their own homemade pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven while enjoying the warmth of the firepit.

Rock View now also offers a private pool for guests to cool down during the warmer weather. Families are welcome!
