Our Story

 

Wines that have elegance, regional character, finesse & classic style.

Wines that are worthy of the Red Hill Estate label.”

— Frank Fabrizio

Since 1989, we have produced some of the finest wines from the Mornington Peninsula and our brand is now synonymous with this Cool Climate region.

The 42 acre Shoreham Road estate was established in 1989 by the late Australian businessman, Sir Peter Derham and 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 of Red Hill Estate.

Fruit is also sourced from our Merricks Grove Vineyard, situated on the south eastern hills of the Mornington Peninsula. Established in 1998, it has flourished into a mature quality producing vineyard of high repute.

Our wines are exceptional, with the cool maritime climate mixing with volcanic and sedimentary soils to create wines that are wonderfully textured, complex and elegantly understated.

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 vineyards 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.
