Pokolbin Purple Farm is located in the heart of Australia’s divine Hunter Valley Wine Country. Situated less than two hours from Sydney and an hour from Newcastle, Pokolbin is a spectacular region with an abundance of accommodation, wineries and activities for all ages.

With stunning Pokolbin views, rich Hunter Valley soil and a Shiraz vineyard included it was easy for Elizabeth, with a farming background, to convince Craig to undertake a tree change. With a passion for restoring biodynamic balance to the land, we not only run horses and cattle, and grow our own Shiraz grapes and vegetables, but we also grow organic, hand processed garlic with amazing flavour to tempt the tastebuds of all garlic lovers.

Through careful taste and performance selection, we are concentrating on growing three main varieties of Garlic – Italian Pink, Rojo de Castro and Garleek (also known as Elephant Garlic) – and are delighted to now be experimenting with garlic scapesfresh green garlicGarleek flowers for the wholesale flower markets and wine pickled garlic, as well as continuing to sell the normal garlic bulbs and cloves everyone knows and loves.

We are also excited to bring you our Spotty Dog range of Cheese Platter Wine Pastes sold locally and in Queensland through selected outlets.
