The 10th Hot Summer Night was held on Saturday evening, 15th February. And what a night it was!! Taking place in their Barrel Shed, the Hollick Wines staff looked after guests from far and wide – Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and even a couple from Germany! Greeted with a glass of Hollick sparkling on arrival, the guests were then treated to a delicious 3 course meal prepared by the Upstairs at Hollick Restaurant team, all perfectly matched with Hollick Wine.
Guests were entertained by the 80s hit Australian band Boom Crash Opera opening with the classic “Get Out Of The House!”, followed by a number of their 80’s classics like “Hands Up In The Air”, “Dancing in the Storm”, “Great Wall” and “Onion Skin” as well as a few new songs. They interacted with the crowd bringing guests on to the stage to join in a few cover songs such as “Sweet Caroline” and “The Holy Grail”.
At the conclusion of entertainment, the band members joined the guests for a chat, photos and autographs. Organiser Kate Hollick said “it was a great night and the perfect celebration for the 10th year of hosting Hot Summer Night. Boom Crash Opera are certainly up there as the best we’ve had! We must thank all the loyal locals, as well as the people who travelled, for supporting the event year after year. It was nice to see a lot of the local accommodation was booked out over the weekend as a result of the event.”
We welcome a brand new product to the ever growing Hollick wines family. Just in time for the warmer months and for the first time ever, we are very excited to announce the release our Hollick Rosé!!
Hollick Wines made a brief appearance at Old Trafford yesterday for day 4 of the Third Test of the Ashes. Richard Hales from Gerrard Seel in Warrington took along a Hollick cooler bag for the day, and suggested it if made it to Australian TV coverage of the Ashes then we'd owe him a box of Wilgha Shiraz. Luckily, we didn't spot it, did you???

The Hollick family have long been passionate about their Pinot Noir, and so it was in 2006 that we planted a further 4 clones of Pinot Noir on our Wilgha Vineyard to add to our original plantings which have been making the Hollick Pinot Noir since 1986. The 2010 vintage was an ideal vintage to showcase what each of the new clones, 114, 115, 777 and MV6 brought to the table and as such a barrel of each clone was kept separate and bottled separately on site in Coonawarra.
