Woodlands Wines, Wilyabrup

#5 of 23 in Wineries in Wilyabrup
Woodlands Wines is an Australian winery at Wilyabrup, in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. Established in 1973 by David and Heather Watson, it held its first vintage in 1978, and by the end of 1982 had won trophies at wine shows in Mount Barker, Perth and Canberra with its "Andrew" Cabernet Sauvignon 1981.
In the latter part of the 1980s and the early 1990s, Woodlands sold all of its harvest to other Margaret River wineries. In 1999, the Watsons began a major expansion program. Two years later, Woodlands opened a cellar door, and rejuvenated its own label.
Since then, Woodlands wines have received international acclaim; in annual blind tastings against Bordeaux wines of the same vintage, the Woodlands Margaret Reserve Cabernet Merlot has consistently been rated at or near the top.

  • Exquisite wines. We also very much enjoyed a friendly chat about the area and its history. Coming from California (by way of Hong Kong), we loved the quality of the wines combined with the low-key, friendly introduction to the Margaret River ethos. Will definitely drink more of this!
  • I came to Woodlands as a solo female visiting the region from California. Woodlands wines give anything out of Napa Valley and beyond a run for their money! Amazing wines at quite affordable price points. Really warm and welcoming staff too, thanks to James for taking good care of me. Highly recommended !
