Coonawarra, SA: Hollick Wines’ iconic Cabernet Sauvignon took centre stage last week, being served to US President Barack Obama as he toured Australia.
On November 16th Mr. Obama and Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, were joined by 600 guests in Parliament House’s Great Hall, enjoying a showcase of Australia’s best food and wine.
Founder and Managing Director of Hollick Wines, Ian Hollick, was humbled by the honour.
"We obviously have come to realise our Cabernet Sauvignon is much loved, but we hope an endorsement of this magnitude really elevates the status of the wine in the eyes of the trade and consumers," he said.
"Our understanding is that the wine was matched with lamb on the night – so a perfect combination to impress the visiting President."
This latest endorsement of Hollick’s Cabernet Sauvignon comes just as the brand has enjoyed a number of award wins, including the Intercontinental Adelaide South Australian Wine of the Year Awards, People’s Choice for "The Nectar".
