Michael Downer - Mental Notes #2 Q&A

Michael Downer has the biggest shed in the Adelaide Hills. I think. He also makes some pretty amazing, home grown, low intervention wine too. 

We asked him some questions..:

What's the favourite wine you make?

Enjoying making various blends at the moment, using different varieties as tool to make drinkable wines.

Best place to eat in Adelaide right now...?

Africola. Duncan is a mean chef who always puts on a show.

Best advice you've ever been given?

Not to chase fashion, have a unique style, you can't please everyone.

Finish this sentence - if I didn't make wine I'd... Be a farmer.

Who's making the best wine in Australia?

Tony Brady, Wendouree. 

Favourite song right now?

Sofi Tukker - Drinkee
