The Downer Family have farmed their property 'Erinka' since 1939, reaping benefits of fertile soils of the Onkaparinga Valley in the heart of the Adelaide Hills.
The farm has operated as a beef cattle property for the last sixty years. Charlie and Julie Downer established Murdoch Hill in 1998. The twenty one hectare vineyard is situated in undulating hills where cool climate predominates and produces magnificent fruit.
Michael Downer is a talented young winemaker, producing many superb wines. The Artisan Series wines are of particular note and worth seeking out.
