The Importance of Oak in Winemaking

There are certain classic images that spring to mind when people think about the winemaking process – frenetic scenes of vintage, bunches of grapes hanging on the vines, hand picking, even that age-old tradition of foot stomping and plunging the fruit once it hits the winery. Mostly, though, it’s the abiding image of serried ranks of oak barrels, their precious contents slowly undergoing the miraculous process of fermentation and ageing in the winery cellars. Of course, nowadays, particularly in large-scale vinous production, much of this process is mechanised, and the wine held in vast stainless-steel vats. But even then, a great deal of the wine will still have contact with oak in some shape or form. Here, our winemaker Bec Duffy explores why oak still plays such an important role in the winemaking process, and more particularly, how and why we choose what style of oak we use at Holm Oak.

General manager

Pinot 'd' Pig


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!
