Description

Founded by Rex and Jan Hayes in 1997, Downderry vines grow on what was a working farm for many years. Originally the co-owner of Narrogin's local liquour store, Rex has always had a passion for the perfect drop and a determination to prove the well-matured loam and gravel over clay soils on his property could host healthy vines. The harvest season is truly a community affair at Downderry, with several local charities and sporting groups contributing to grape-picking.

The wines are made by Wine Society's Young Winemaker of the Year in 2013, Coby Ladwig of Rockcliffe's Wines.

The Wines

Varieties include an earthy Shiraz, Rose, Moscato, Sparkling and an award-winning Zinfandel. Downderry Wines has won more than 20 medals and trophies in the Wandering Wheatbelt Wine Awards.

In 1995, prominent Western Australian Cardiologist, Dr Geoffrey Lane, purchased a picturesque parcel of virgin farmland in Wandering, Western Australia to establish a premium table wine vineyard. Since then, Geoffrey, together with his wife Christine and three sons, Andrew, Peter and Jonathan has developed the property from the ground up, hand planting almost 30 acres of vines, comprising a range of varieties including Shiraz, Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling and Zinfandel. The family has also lovingly restored the family homestead that now boasts magnificent views over the entire estate and surounding National Park.

Wandering is located in Western Australia's 'Peel' wine region, approximately 1.5 hours south of Perth. Its warm, even summers, cold winter conditions and extremely deep fertile soils, make it an ideal wine growing region. The Wandering Lane estate epitomises the essence of boutique vineyard life-style where 'work hard, play hard' has always been the family motto. Anyone who visits the property can immediately see the love and attention to detail that has gone into every aspect of the venture.
