Donna Stephens is our Chief Winemaker at Red Hill Estate.

Before becoming a winemaker, Donna completed a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Biology & Zoology which eventually landed her a job in Nhulunbuy (Google it!) in Australia’s Northern Territory working on a crocodile farm.

Having finished her degree in Winemaking from Charles Sturt University in 1994, Donna worked at Buronga Hill Winery as an Assistant Winemaker and from there, took up the helm at Cranswick Estate and then Evans & Tate; as Senior Winemaker

Prior to joining the team at Red Hill Estate, Donna enjoyed a long and successful stint in the Clare Valley with Kirrihill Wines, where she created award winning Regional & Single Vineyard wines.

Donna works with our wider winemaking and viticultural team to create wines that both she (and we) love. Wines that have genuine regional character, real finesse & classic style.

Wines that are worthy of the Red Hill Estate label.
