About the Winery

It was during 1981 that Woodlands, the Margaret River Valley-based winery in Australia, released its first wine in the market. However, the brand didn’t release any wine after that for more than a decade as the founders, David & Heather Watson, wanted to focus on their kids’ education. This was until 1991. During this time, all the fruits produced by Woodlands vineyards were sold to other wine producers.

The year 2007 was an important one for the Woodlands winery. This was because the company purchased the Woodlands Brook Vineyard in the picturesque Wilyabrup Valley. Thanks to this vineyard, the 2nd generation of the Watson family has explored opportunities to plant intense Cabernet Sauvignon on the interesting soils in the Wilyabrup Valley.

The two vineyards, where the fruits are grown for Woodlands wines are the following:
