Welcome to Stoney Rise Wine Company

Gourmet Traveller Wine Best Cellar Door

Stoney Rise Wine Company is located in the heart of the Tamar Valley in Northern Tasmania, Australia. It is a family run boutique winery owned by Joe and Lou Holyman.

In 2004 we returned to Tasmania with our sights set on growing and producing the best pinot noir and chardonnay we could. We purchased a vineyard that was planted in 1986 in the Tamar Valley, north of Launceston and set about doing just that. 2008 saw the construction of our winery on site.

We love all things vinous, we take our wines and what we do rather seriously albeit with relaxed personalities we try and have the most amount of fun possible.

Fantastic Review

Gary Walsh from Wine Front recently gave our 2014 Holyman Chardonnay a brilliant review.  Head to our reviews page to see what he said.  Stocks are seriously depleting by the day.  We don't usually bang on about 'get in quick - stocks are limited' but in this case if you would like some, be quick because we didn't make very much and it is flying out the door.  Buy Now.
