Joe Holyman is a legend in his native Tassie, and also on the mainland, not only for his cricketing prowess but, more importantly, one of the pre-eminent winemakers of Chardonnay and Pinot in Australia.

He specialises in these two varieties on a small and much loved, not forgetting stunningly beautiful, vineyard on the banks of the Tamar at Gravelly Beach some 20 ks north of Launceston.
