A few years later she then finished another degree, this time in Winemaking from Charles Sturt University. 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 viticultural team to create wines that we have all grown to love. Wines that have elegance, regional character, finesse & classic style.

Wines that are worthy of the Red Hill Estate label.
