Coonawarra is renowned as one of Australia's finest wine regions and is particularly known for producing world class red wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. The rich red terra rossa soils over limestone, pure underground water and a long cool ripening season for the grapes produce wines of elegance and longevity.
Hollick Estates wines are made from three core vineyards; “Neilson's Block”, planted by Ian and Wendy Hollick in 1975, the nearby “Wilgha” vineyard” purchased in 1987 and the “Red Ridge” vineyard in Wrattonbully developed in 1998, giving Hollick over 85 hectares of vineyard in total. Eighty percent is planted to red varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Barbera and Petit Verdot. The balance of the vineyards is planted with the white varieties Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Savagnin.
