WyNo Dinner Series: William Downie Wines

We’ve been celebrating Australian wine producers with a series of dinners, the second Monday of everything Month. Coming up next is William (Bill) Downiefrom Gippsland, Victoria on Monday 9th AprilIn the intimate setting of WyNo Bar enjoy a night with Bill as he talks you through his terroir driven wines over great food. Below, a note from a recent interview;

Bill has an obvious love and affection for pinot noir, but it’s not his true love. He doesn’t want to make great pinot noir; he wants to release great representations of the sites where the grapes – regardless of variety – are grown. “We have to give up the quest to be a winemaker and have faith in the site,” he says. “Concentrating on varieties is like allowing the choice of motor car to define the trip, rather than the destination.”
