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.

Cellar Door

Enjoy teas and coffees alongside generous wine and cheese tastings at this quaint, family-friendly cellar door operated by the estate's friendly owners (and a handful of cuddly sheep and alpacas for kids to enjoy). Open Friday to Monday 11am - 5pm.

Unique Highlights

Caravaners are welcome to stay overnight on the grass for $5 a night (fee waived with the purchase of wine!)
