Leogate Estate is situated at the foot of the Brokenback Ranges in Australia’s oldest wine producing region, the Hunter Valley. The gates that form the entrance to Leogate Estate, were placed on the property by the current custodians Bill and Vicki Widin when they bought the Brokenback Vineyard in 2008. These gates are considered the protectors of this old vineyard planted in the 1960’s by one of the founding fathers of the modern Australian wine industry, Len Evans AO OBE and the Rothbury syndicate. Each gate has a rampant lion figure positioned in the centre, which inspired the name Leogate Estate Wines.
Leogate Estate Wines is a five-star winery based in Pokolbin, Hunter Valley. This ultra-modern facility has been built as a centre-piece in the middle of the privately-owned vineyard, known as the original “Brokenback Vineyard”, planted in the late 1960’s. Leogate prides itself on offering a luxurious winery, cellar door, restaurant and function facility.
