An international oenologist with more than 30 years of experience in the field of winemaking, Stephen Donnelly is known around the world under the nickname "Flying Winemaker" or "Wine Trouble Shooter". Stephen began his career in Napa Valley, studying at the famous Davis University in California and since then he has confirmed his talent, skill, and experience by creating exceptional wines in England, Hungary, South Africa, India, and now Romania.
Each country's terroir has its own characteristics and its own typicity, and yet he has managed to win international medals for every producer he has worked with during all these years.
He started creating great wines in our country in 1995, and since 2007 he is our winemaker, having already won over 300 awards (gold, silver, and bronze medals) for our wines at some of the most important international wine competitions, such as Decanter World Wine Awards, like Mondial de Bruxelles, Mundus Vini, International Wine Challenge, International Wine and Spirit Competition, Berlin Wine Trophy, and many others.
"As a winemaker, my role is to bring the best out of each grape variety, and my philosophy is that when it comes to quality there can be no compromise."
