A visit to the Margaret River Wine Region would not be complete without stopping in at Driftwood Estate. An architecturally stunning Cellar Door set amongst a rustic setting - the perfect spot to enjoy Driftwood's award-winning wines.

Driftwood Estate is a boutique winery set in the stunning Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, Western Australia. Established by Tom and Helen Galopoulos in 1989 on what had previously been a country retreat, the winery immediately received acclaim when its first wine, a Semillon produced in 1993, won a special commendation in a British competition.


In 2009, leading Australian wine writer James Halliday rated Driftwood Estate as one of the best wineries in the Margaret River region. This result has continued into the 2018 Wine Companion, where Driftwood Estate has again been rated a 5 Star Winery. The vine resources are exceptional, having had years of nurturing to ensure they produce premium fruit showcasing the Wilyabrup sub-region beautifully.


The winemaking philosophy behind the Driftwood wines is one of simplicity – quality wines are made in the vineyard. While winemaking can have a positive input, having premium quality fruit is essential. This is why Driftwood Estate is so fortunate to be located in one of the greatest viticultural areas in the world, sourcing super-premium fruit year in year out. With premium quality fruit, Driftwood's winemaking philosophy is all about protecting and expressing the qualities found in the grapes, so that the wine lover can enjoy the pure, varietal and regional flavours from the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River.


Visit Driftwood Estate and enjoy the relaxing views from the verandas across undulating vines in summer or beside cosy log fires in winter. A truly unique winery.

After reading a number of very good reviews, we visited for lunch. The service was pleasant, restaurant nice although a little tired. Food was good value and very nice without being exceptional. I would say good value pub type food at a reasonable price.

A brilliant place to eat out with friends and family, large variety of menu items and a very comfy-cosy feel and aesthetic. I had the scotch fillet and (while pricey) thought it was worth every penny. Great place to go if your willing to spend the money.

Myself and a few friends from South Australia popped into Driftwood on Saturday for a wine tasting and lunch (as I had heard the new chef is worth a look). We had a blast. Extremely friendly wine tasting staff and a good range of very enjoyable whites and reds. Off to a good start. Kate was a great...

Wine tasting was not professional. The lady kept looking after one group of guests but not us. No explanation of the wines was provided and the lady kept reminding us they close tasting at 4pm even though it was 2:30pm. We did not like any of their wines, so overall not very positive experience. The...
