Share wine, cheese and a chat with Rex and Jan Hayes, a couple determined to realise Narrogin’s potential as a wine growing destination and have a cabinet full of Wheatbelt wine awards to prove it!
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).
