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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Driftwood yesterday. I had the fish of the day and my partner had the lamb. Both meals were beautifully presented and soooooooo delicious! They were really substantial portions as well, so we only needed the one course and didn't leave hungry. Will definitely be back.
