“Wines that have elegance, regional character, finesse & classic style.
Wines that are worthy of the Red Hill Estate label.”
— Frank Fabrizio
In 1989 Red Hill Estate commenced producing some of the finest wines from the Mornington Peninsula, and our brand is now synonymous with the very best wines from Australia’s very best Cool Climate wine regions.
Red Hill Estate was established in 1989 by the late Australian businessman, Sir Peter Derham and his wife Lady Averil. As a pioneer of sparkling wine on the Mornington Peninsula, and with 23 acres under vine, Sir Peter brought a clear vision of what he wanted to achieve under the Red Hill Estate brand.
Fruit for our flagship wines is now sourced from our nearby Merricks Grove Vineyard, situated just a short distance from our Cellar Door on the south eastern hills of the Mornington Peninsula. Established in 1998 the Merricks Grove Vineyard has flourished into a mature, quality producing vineyard of high repute. We now also work with renowned growers in Australia’s finest Cool Climate wine regions outside the Mornington Peninsula to source fruit for a range of other delicious wines sold under our label.
The wines across our diverse range are exceptional, with grapes sourced from Cool Climate wine regions where different cool climates mix with volcanic and sedimentary soils to create wines that are wonderfully textured, complex and elegantly understated and we regard ourselves as Cool Climate wine specialists.
We’ve come a long way at Red Hill Estate and our winemaking team is testament to that. Overseen by owner Frank Fabrizio, the team is responsible for influencing, nurturing and refining the very best that our wines have to offer. Frank works closely 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.
