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.
Visit Holm Oak’s estate and Tamar Valley Cellar Door and you might bump into General Manager Pinot ‘d’ Pig. Throw him an apple and he’ll wake from sleeping on the job. Then wander into Holm Oak’s rustic cellar door to try its extensive range of wines. They are true expressions of Tasmanian wines that have set the world talking about this unique Tasmanian landscape, providing lightness and balance, with fantastic texture and flavour composition.

Like any good manager, Pinot the Pig wanders around keeping a close eye on the daily operations in the vineyards and winery. Pinot was supposed to be a minature pig, however has grown to be a full-size team member, with a larger than life personality, and a keen eye (and nose) for detail. Every good manager however, has a weakness - if fed a couple of fresh apples, the worries of General Management fade away and Pinot is inclined to sleep on the job!
