The Hollows vineyard was established after Trevor Mast had completed an exhaustive search for land to expand the estate’s vineyard area. The site was chosen for its protection from the cold south westerlies and its variety of aspects and high-quality soils – very similar, in fact, to the estate’s original plantings.
