Winemakers are used to being at the mercy of Mother Nature. To produce the finest wines, we have to be nimble and adapt – working with seasonal variations from year to year. However, 2020–21 has thrown us challenges that we’re less accustomed to facing. There’s no denying it’s been tough, but recent events have highlighted the need to think strategically about the future.
As a family-owned Tasmanian winery, we are fully committed to making some of Tasmania’s finest wines and having these products available for our loyal fans to enjoy. Over the last fifteen years we’ve always taken risks and pushed boundaries. It’s now time for us to turn over a new leaf and evolve how people experience our Holm Oak wines.
We will always remain true to our vision of producing quality wines that reflect our Tasmanian home and our own personalities – honest, down to earth, genuine and authentic.
After much consideration, we’ve decided to take a summer hiatus and will close our Holm Oak Cellar Door from Friday 3 December 2021. This gives us a chance to spend some time with our family, travel interstate and come back refreshed to bring you a whole new vintage of your favourite Holm Oak wines.
We know that many of you may have been looking forward to visiting us this season. Our resident General Manager Pinot d’Pig and his trusty sidekicks will also miss visitors feeding them apples this summer!
Holm Oak customers remain the heart of our business and we’re very much focused on delivering new ways you can taste and experience our wine.
Rest assured, we’ll continue to update you about our plans and tastings on our social media pages and by email.
Our online store remains open 24/7 for you to order your favourite Holm Oak selections. Our wines are also widely available both in Tasmania and across much of Australia to enjoy.
Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support of our business.
All the best for the festive season.
Bec and Tim Duffy

Breakfast – it’s long been said that it’s the most important meal of the day, and we have to agree. When we have time (which is not as often as we’d like), we love settling in with a juice, a good cup of coffee and something we’ve not hastily thrown together ourselves...
