Broken River Vineyards, VIC  425 River Road, Kialla Vic 3630
With the purchase of an already established vineyard in 1984, Broken River Vineyards was born. Fred O’Keefe and his family purchased a 10 hectare vineyard at Shepparton in the Goulburn Valley, Victoria. We use a combination of modern and traditional practices in our vineyards to ensure the grape quality is maintained at a very high level to achieve the premium quality we require for our wines as we strive to achieve wines of distinctive varietal character of the region. This is in accordance with our belief and commitment that great wines begin in the vineyard. Our old vineyard is still hand pruned, hand picked, and treated very much in the old traditional way, whereas our new vineyard is partly machine pruned, mechanically harvested and much use is made of modern methods and technology. The new vineyard was planted with automatic drip irrigation and the old vineyard has now been converted to minimal drip irrigation which gives us greater control to help us achieve the grape quality we are striving for.
