Stephen donnelly


I have spent 30 years making wine in places like California, England, Hungary, Romania, South Africa and India gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience along the way.

I am offering my services as a hands on winemaker / consultant. Unlike many consultants who send in others to do the work for them, I physically do the work myself as this is how I ensure the quality and continuity is of the highest standard.

I have worked in some countries with basic and antiquated equipment but still have produced award winning wines.   

I am dedicated and passionate about winemaking and extracting from the grapes their true potential to make wines of the highest possible quality.



If you've ever had the dream of having your own vineyard and winery and didn't know how to make it a reality, I can help you save time and money by getting it right from the beginning, avoiding costly mistakes. I can advise and work with you right from the start as the first year is where you'll need the most help.
