Thea, an avid horse lover, and her husband, Rob, have long had a passion for hosting horse shows on their working horse farm. In 2013, Thea and Rob with the help of their entire extended family planted the beginnings of the Broken Spoke Vineyard. Soon after, The Broken Spoke family opened their tasting room doors on June 23, 2017!
The playful family took their love for wordplay to create wines that welcome conversation. Take a break start a conversation! While the Broken Spoke family enjoys breaking and toying with the spoken word, their name roots back to the wheel you see featured on their tasting room wall. This wheel was gifted to the family from Thea’s grandfather from the Netherlands. Once used to hold up grapes then converted into a chandelier, the wheel possesses significant sentimental value.
A trip to the Broken Spoke Vineyard & Winery entails a lovely drive past the family’s animals, a look at the flourishing vines, and a fantastic taste of the family’s wine which can be enjoyed in the old horse barn now transformed into a cosy tasting room. Many days, you can find the whole Broken Spoke family within the tasting room walls treating guests to their renowned farm-style hospitality and the warming presence of Charley Hall, the family’s chocolate lab.
The Broken Spoke tasting room is home to a wide array of events and is never lacking the rustic, farm ambience that guarantees a relaxing visit.
