Hollydene Estates Executive Director and Owner Karen Williams' passion for the land and agriculture began early in life and in 2004 she began her grape growing experience by purchasing a property called Roseglen, a vineyard adjacent to Rosemount Estate near Denman. Karen completed Certificates in Viticulture and Wine Making while supplying grapes to Rosemount, keeping only small parcels to bottle for her original label ‘JUUL’. After industry rationalisation and the sale of Rosemount, Karen and her family decided to expand the business and in 2005 purchased Hollydene vineyard at Hollydeen between Denman and Sandy Hollow. The following year they bought the Wybong vineyard, previously known as ‘Reynolds Yarraman’ and sold Roseglen. From then the Wybong and Hollydene vineyards were run under the banner and brand of Hollydene.
