Welcome to Restdown

Certified Organic Winery, Farm and Wetland

Restdown

Close with Nature

Our 1100 acre, certified organic beef farm, vineyard, winery and wetland walk along the Backroads Trail in southern NSW, is just 40 minutes from Barham, Echuca-Moama, Deniliquin and Mathoura.

Encompassing Restdown Wines and Jungle Lane Beef Co, Restdown is a multi-award winning agricultural haven working with nature, guided by strong principles of sustainability, with organic and biodynamic practices to produce the tastiest, most nutritious beef and finest, handcrafted boutique wines, we possibly can.

Minimising our carbon footprint through the use of solar power, providing the best of care and animal welfare practices for our animals, embracing organic and bio-dynamic practices and recycling our resources to create a healthy ecosystem full of bio-diversity, results in deliciously healthy, clean green products. All in a day’s work at Restdown.

The Restdown Wetland is an important part of our sustainability. Wetlands are the kidneys of the Earth, filtering our groundwater and

providing important habitats for a huge range of plants, animals and insects. Bio-diversity is vital to agriculture, promoting pollination and balancing insect populations to assist with pest management. To this end, we have formed a number of partnerships with organisations who research environmental sustainability and manage natural resources ANU, OEH, MWWG

Our Wines

…with attention to every detail

Restdown Wines are produced right here at Restdown, from vine to bottle. The grapes are grown in our certified organic vineyard and are carefully nurtured in our underground winery to create outstanding wines that reflect the natural purity of our organic environs and the seasonal influences which are unique from year to year.

Made with Passion

…for your pleasure

The vines are given the utmost care and attention to detail. Hand pruning and harvesting, mulching techniques, bio-dynamic preparations made here on the property and minimal intervention, traditional, hands-on winemaking with low use of sulphites, are key to the resulting wines; fresh, fruit driven wines, which are a true reflection of the season and the site.

Savour the character

…in every bottle

Our cellar currently consists of a crisp, dry semillon, unoaked chardonnay, full bodied merlot, light provencale-style rose, aged cabernet and medium-bodied shiraz. All low in sulphites, all excellent wines to match with food.

Restdown Verjus

only natural australian ingredients

Restdown verjus

The secret ingredient

…made from our organic grapes

What is Verjus? I’m glad you asked! Verjus is a non-alcoholic, semi-ripe grape juice. It’s made from our certified organic Semillon grapes, hand picked early, once the sugar level is just right. The grapes retain their tart, acid content making verjus perfect for cooking or drinking. But what it does is give a recipe acidity without the hammer of a true vinegar, lifting and enhancing the flavour.

We love our cows!

Certified Organic Beef

…it’s only natural

Here at Restdown we’re blessed with an abundance of native trees, vegetation and room to roam, creating a wonderful certified organic environment for our herd of happy and healthy Hereford cows.

Caring for our animals is our highest priority, with their well being firmly at the forefront of all our decision making here on our farm.

The Hereford breed is famous for its calm nature and mothering ability. Allowing them to graze only on naturally occurring grasses and pastures full of nutrition and natural health-giving properties, means the resulting meat is succulent, flavoursome and tender.
