Multi-award winning premium red and white wines, delicious food, unique gifts, great value and a charming setting.
Woody Nook Wines is a long established family-owned, winery that is small and unpretentious but which has received consistent critical acclaim for the quality of their premium wines. 

Nestled in the Margaret River wine-growing area of Western Australia and just a few miles from the Indian Ocean, Woody Nook is situated on a ridge of rich gravelly loam. Its original vines, planted almost forty years ago, are dry farmed, resulting in full fruit flavours and distinctive varietal characteristics. Whether you are familiar with Woody Nook’s crisp, fruit driven whites and rich, firmly-structured reds, or learning about them for the first time, the friendly and knowledgeable cellar door sales staff look forward to welcoming you and helping you to discover their range. 

 You can enjoy a browse of an excellent range of attractive wine-related gifts, many of them unique to Woody Nook in Australia, all selected with the tourist in mind – quirky, small, lightweight, and inexpensive. There is also a display of local art and jewellery in the Gallery tasting room. 

The Nookery Café is set against an impressive backdrop of jarrah and marri forest. It has a rustic, cosy charm both inside the cottage-style building and outside under the shady pergola or on the all-weather alfresco patio by the fish pond. There is also a grassy play area with swings for children and meals especially for them. 

Busselton-born Chef Johnathon Merrick and his team use as much of the local area’s meats, cheeses and seafood as possible to create both favourite dishes and daily specials, prepared quickly and served by efficient and friendly wait staff. 

Cosy and self-contained Woody Nook House is available for short term rental, with photos and information about its amenities found via the website linked above.

Lovely wine tasting experience by the English ( i think) lady and man whi bought the winery. They were absolutely lovely hosts and provided us with stories and histories of the wine. Wine was just so lovely. Will definitely be back! The food wasn't too bad either. Well cooked but just needed a little more seasoning for my taste.

Charming rustic venue, food was really good, recommend the grilled barramundi or the steak sandwich, good wines, service was very good. Very relaxed atmosphere & clean facilities. maybe a little bit out of the way for some but worth the drive.

If you visit the wine region regularly you need to at least have lunch here once. Great food.

This winery restaurant is obviously very popular with a great atmosphere, the wine and service behind the counter was exceptional and very nice selection of wines and tastings. We were served by a very nice well mannered waiter of French origin when we ordered our meals, but we were obviously forgotten about completely for over an hour until I mentioned we hadn't received our meals. It was very busy and they were turning away customers because they were fully for birthday parties and other large groups, I enjoyed the meal I ordered and it was 5 star as was the wine I was consuming, however some of my companions weren't overly impressed with the quality and quantity of their meals, which they thought were very small serves for the price. Getting access to the bar area was difficult with all the tables and chairs blocking the path with the birthday party happening inside and the other access was full of people sampling wines etc. The carpark was packed and could be better laid out. However, i would definitely recommend a visit to this great little venue as the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and I will be returning at a later date to hopefully give them a 5 star review.
