William Downie

William Downie Logo

Bill Downie established his own label in 2003 after several years living and working in Burgundy. Such is his passion for Pinot Noir that it is the only wine he makes, one from Mornington, one from Yarra and one from Gippsland. Bill is fanatical about the quality of his fruit and where it comes from, so where possible, sources fruit from vineyards which use biodymanic and organic viticultural practices. By taking the best elements from the Burgundian producers he most admires and allying these to a more technocratic Australian approach, Bill has been able to develop his own style, making him one of the most sought after producers of Victorian Pinot Noir. Bill was the Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine Young Australian Winemaker of the Year for 2006.
