Holm Oak & Cooke Brothers Tasting
About Holm Oak & Cooke Brothers

Holm Oak:

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.
Winemaker Rebecca Duffy, daughter of owners Ian and Robyn Wilson, has extensive winemaking experience in Australia and California, and husband Tim, a viticultural agronomist, manages the vineyard (pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, riesling, sauvignon blanc and pinot gris, with small amounts of merlot, cabernet franc and arneis).

Cooke Brothers:

This is the venture of three brothers, eldest to youngest Simon, Jason and Ben, with diverse employment backgrounds. Ben is the partner of Charlotte Hardy, winemaker/owner of Charlotte Dalton Wines, parents (as at March 2018) of a 10-month-old daughter.
He has a long career in wine, seven years retail for Booze Brothers while at university first time around; two vintages at Langhorne Creek ’00-’01; full time cellar hand/assistant winemaker at Shaw + Smith ’03-’12, while dictating two degrees externally (wine science and viticulture) at CSU from ’04-’11. If this were not enough, he had three northern Californian vintages at the iconic Williams Selyem winery in ’08, ’12 and ’13.
He is now full time viticulturist with a vineyard management contracting company which he founded in ’12.
The elder brothers have an interest in Ben’s progression, but are not actively involved in the business.
