Katnook Estate

Our Team


Wayne Stehbens
Senior Winemaker

Wayne has been with Katnook since our "second chapter" began in 1980, making him one of Australia's longest serving and most successful winemakers.

Wayne cites the loves of his life as: his family; wine; fast cars (he owns two Bolwells which he built from scratch); water skiing and tennis. Oh and  the odd drop of Guinness and Cooper’s Pale Ale are his favourite alternatives to wine.
