Until recently the vineyard was operated and worked by the family members.

Seeking to add diversity to their Coonawarra holdings, the Hollick team specifically sought a site in Wrattonbully which was suited to the production of premium wine grapes. The vineyard of 30 hectares was developed in 1998, giving Hollick over 90 hectares of vineyard in total. The Wrattonbully vineyard is aptly named Red Ridge and is planted predominantly to Shiraz. The Hollick team set out to push the boundaries by planting alternative varieties such as Tempranillo and Sangiovese, and added Cabernet Sauvignon so that they could emulate the Tuscan style of a Sangiovese Cabernet blend.

Testimonials

Chris Shanahan, Wine Writer, goodfood.com.au

During the red wine boom of the mid nineties, Australia's large winemakers began broad-acre vine plantings at Wrattonbully, adjoining Coonawarra's north-eastern boundary. Ten years later, the area contributed large volumes of high quality fruit for many popular wine brands. But nobody new for sure how high fruit quality might go in future. And ten years on, we know quality can be about as good as it gets in Australia. The area now contributes to some of our greatest wines, but also produces lovely, elegant reds.
