Stoney Rise

Our Review

The Holyman family had been involved in vineyards in Tasmania for 20 years, but Joe Holyman’s career in the wine industry – first as a sales rep, then as a wine buyer and more recently working in wineries in NZ, Portugal, France, Mount Benson and Coonawarra – gave him an exceptionally broad-based understanding of wine. In '04 Joe and wife Lou purchased the former Rotherhythe vineyard, which had been established in '86, and set about restoring it to its former glory. There are 2 ranges: the Stoney Rise wines, focusing on fruit and early drinkability; and the Holyman wines – with more structure, more new oak and the best grapes, here the focus is on length and potential longevity. In ’21, the duo opened a new tasting room/wine bar onsite, designed by local studio Cumulus. -JAMES HALLIDAY
