Now in its fifth year, Negroni Week was launched in 2013 as a way of celebrating one of the world’s great cocktails and raising money for charity across the globe. In that time, it’s grown from 100 participating venues to more than 7700, collectively raising more than $1.5million for charitable causes.

Renowned for its pioneering spirit, Margan was one of the first Australian producers to launch a vermouth and makes two styles: an Off-Dry and an Off-Sweet. Using single-vintage Semillon and a unique selection of estate-grown botanicals, the vermouth has reached cult status and is a favourite among bartenders and cocktail lovers alike.

The hands-on Masterclasses will show cocktail lovers how to build (and enjoy!) three vermouth cocktails. They are held every Saturday in May and June at 10.30am as part of the Hunter Valley Wine and Food Festival and cost is $25.


Bookings are essential for Vermouth Masterclasses and can be booked online at



A visit to Broke, no matter how many times you've before, isn't a trip to Broke without a drop in at Margan.

Margan is the life and love of husband and wife team Andrew and Lisa Margan, together with their children Ollie, Alessa and James, and this year they are celebrating 20 years of award-winning winemaking at their Broke Fordwich Estate in the Hunter Valley.

Along with a series of lunches and dinners at the acclaimed Margan Cellar Door and Restaurant, that also racks up a decade of business in 2016, the family has released a number of pioneering wines, Breaking Ground, as well as the world’s first vintage off-dry Semillon vermouth.

So how did all this begin? Andrew is the son of just passed Australian food and wine pioneer, Frank Margan. spent his younger years split between his father’s and Hunter Valley icon Murray Tyrrell’s vineyards, instilling a passion for both the Hunter Valley and winemaking. Two decades ago, armed with nothing but a purchase order to bankroll the costs of his first wines, Andrew decided to have a go himself and make wine under his own name.
Today, Andrew is chief winemaker and viticulturist, responsible for 30,000 cases, while Lisa is Restaurateur, developing the estate-grown projects (lambs, bees, garden and smallgoods) and manages the Margan Restaurant and Cellar Door.
