name, Hawkers Gate, is borrowed from a gate along Australia’s
great dog fence, about 250 km north of Broken Hill. Here the
fence forms the border between South Australia and New South
a part of the country I love. A dusty place of station tracks,
sand dunes and the remnants of old homesteads. It can be a
challenging place too, for when it rains, the clay-based tracks
quickly turn into a slippery quagmire, which adds its own
sense of excitement. The feeling and passion I have for places
such as this is reflected in my wine, hence the adoption of
the Hawkers Gate name. It’s a great place that I recommend
you visit on your way to Cameron Corner and Innamincka.
visit Hawkers Gate, and do it in style with a bottle of Hawkers
Gate wine under your arm.
