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.

Ate here with family back in December (forgot to leave a review earlier) and had an awesome time. Food tasted really fresh and full of flavour. I have only eaten duck a handful of times and it was absolutely amazing at Driftwood. Service was great too, their were some younger staff that were impressive as well. My family all enjoyed their meals too. Looking forward to coming back soon.

We absolutely loved Driftwood Estate. We went for a Friday night dinner - it could not of been better. The food was super fresh and yummy and their wine was a perfect match. Would high recommend the wood fired pizza. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the service was 10/10. We will be back soon!

The family run vineyard experience we all dream about. Nothing pretentious here, just good food, stellar wine selection, welcoming smiles and big laughs. The food was delicious, I had the gnocchi and serving was sizable but everyone else was all too happy to eat what I couldn't. Others had fish and salads which were also delicious, but noted there were options for vegans too. The wine was beautiful (allowed to try what you like), something for every budget, and the chardonnay with lunch was perfection. The setting is peaceful and on the balcony we got the breeze and looked out over the vineyards. The whole experience was so memorable, very laid back European vibes, and at the end the owners even came and had a drink with us. Thank you Driftwood, you made our weekend so special! * I don't even write reviews usually but felt compelled to share such a great and unexpected experience

Amazing food, perfect venue, great wine and friendly, helpful staff! Our party of six enjoyed a wonderful lunch and especially appreciated their willingness to meet special dietary requirements. My husband and I had dinner there a couple of weeks ago and couldn't wait to take our friends there....... they all loved it! We thoroughly recommend it!!
