About

Ranked among the world’s most prestigious wine regions, Margaret River is located three hours south of Perth, Western Australia. Margaret River is the most geographically isolated wine region in the world and a major tourist destination, boasting award-winning wineries and restaurants, surf breaks, ancient caves and spectacular scenery. Deep Woods Estate is located in the Margaret River sub-region known as the Yallingup Hills. The 32-hectare property is perched high on a ridge overlooking a picturesque, secluded valley surrounded by large jarrah and marri trees. The estate comprises a modern winery, vineyard, cellar door, bottling line and homestead. With its large natural spring, dense woodlands and spectacular views, Deep Woods is one of the region’s most scenic wineries. After being acquired by the Fogarty Wine Group in 2005, the vineyard was reworked and a new vineyard maintenance program was introduced, utilising sustainable vineyard practices to improve fruit quality and produce smaller, higher-quality yields. This philosophy has produced outstanding fruit and superior wines—including award-winning Cabernet and Chardonnay—which are processed and bottled in small batches.
