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 Societys Young Winemaker of the Year in 2013, Coby Ladwig of Rockcliffes Wines.
