Dancing, Wine Tasting and Camping ! This is what we have done in the past and will again in the future.
Beautiful Somerville Winery at Broke in the Hunter Valley. An unforgettable weekend away with Buena Vista Dance!
BVD has visited this place a few times before and the whole experience impressed us so much that we can’t wait to do it again! The venue was great for our dance workshops and parties, and the quality of both the local wine and the food for our South American BBQ was outstanding. We’re making it for both days of the weekend, with overnight camping (BYO tent, or you can stay at nearby accommodation if you’re not a camper). We can then explore much more of this beautiful region.
For non-campers, overnight accommodation is available nearby – please make your own arrangements. The Somerville Farmhouse (which is on the property) has 3 bedrooms available (but will fill up quickly). Bookings need to be made directly with the owners. Contact phone number for bookings: 0425 298 833. If the farmhouse is fully booked, you can also try wotif.com to find other nearby accommodation in the Hunter Valley region (a short drive away).
Wine tasting will be included in the price, as well as 3 buffet meals, over 5 hours of dance workshops and a party, what great value! A quality selection of the local Somerville wines will be available for purchase by the glass, bottle or case at very good prices.
