Holm Oak takes its name from its grove of oak trees, planted around the beginning of the 20th century and originally intended for the making of tennis racquets. A boutique family affair, winemaker Rebecca Duffy has extensive winemaking experience in Australia and California; and husband Tim, a viticultural agronomist, manages the vineyard (pinot noir, pinot gris, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, riesling and small amounts of merlot, arneis, shiraz and cabernet franc). Cellar door, winery, family home (and a pet pig named Pinot) all co-exist on the vineyard site. Exports to the UK, the US and Japan.
Holm Oak is the labour of love of dynamic duo, Bec Duffy and her husband Tim Duffy. Since 2006 they have followed their dream of crafting delicious expressions of cool-climate Tasmanian wines. Bec is the winemaker and Tim is viticulturist. Their complementary skills provide a vision to produce delicious wines that reflect their home, Tasmania’s pristine Tamar Valley, and their own personalities – honest, down to earth, genuine and authentic.
