|Down at the Vineyards
Down South Wines has been founded on a philosophy of producing only premium, 'varietally correct' wines - for truly outstanding value - exclusively at our state-of-the-art winery, in the world renowned Willyabrup region of Margaret River in Western Australia. To do so, we select and vintner only the intense flavoured fruit from Margaret River and adjacent premium South West regions. As such, filling what is perceived to be a niche in the Asian export market for fine Margaret River wine.
The resulting wines are carefully blended to produce the best possible result from each vintage. This guarantees our wines are premium quality, soft, approachable and ready to open and enjoy now, or if you prefer, lay down for two or three years.
Using the modern new world techniques available, incorporating state-of-the-art equipment, our head winemaker and his dedicated team strive to produce the finest wines possible, combining centuries-old craftsmanship with the computer enhanced technology available to today's winemakers.
Down South Wines and their business partner in Australia, have their winery with an associated tasting facility, just north of Cowaramup on the corner of Harmans Mill Road and the Bussell Highway itself. This facility has been completed to our pride, so we would be delighted to show off the latest addition to the modern wine making business, which supplies all their wines to the Hong Kong and China markets. Should you happen by on your travels, pop in, introduce yourselves and have a taste and a chat.
Buy from the Asia Cellar Door.
Down South Wines are involved vertically in the wine industry; from their vineyards, to the winery and on to their distribution channels, which they have established in Asia, notably Hong Kong and China.
The owners made a decision in 1999 to bring their wines to these markets directly rather than through distributors and accordingly set up their Headquarters in Hong Kong. Since then, the company has grown steadily, and now has an in China in Guangzhou with several distributors in regions outside the Guandong Province.
Our ethos has been to provide our wines at the best possible prices to our customers and create a situation whereby people are virtually buying from the "Cellar Door" by bypassing the middle-man or distributor. This is why you cannot buy our wines in normal retail outlets and why you can buy at such good value.
