A pioneer of the Adelaide Hills wine region and the premium Piccadilly Valley subregion, he planted the 3-hectare Ashton Hills estate vineyard in the early 1980’s. The vineyard is now widely considered the greatest single site for pinot noir in South Australia.
Stephen has also had a long standing consultant role at Wendouree, whose red wines are some of the most sort after in Australia.
