Moss Wood

Western Australia | Margaret River

James' Review

Widely regarded as one of the best wineries in the region, producing glorious Chardonnay, power-laden Semillon and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that lives for decades. Moss Wood also owns the RibbonVale Estate, the wines treated as vineyard-designated within the Moss Wood umbrella. Exports to all major markets.


Planted in 1969 with its first vintage in 1973, Moss Wood is an important, founding estate of the Margaret River region. Dr John Gladstones academic paper of 1966, recommended the region for its consistent maritime and Mediterranean climate, suggesting it would lend itself to growing the highest quality wine grapes. Keith Mugford has been making wine and tending the vineyard at Moss Wood since 1979 and in 1984 he was joined in this by his wife Clare. They constantly strive to make the finest possible wines from their exceptional site. The couples exacting viticulture ensures the production of grapes of excellent quality and consistently fine wines from one year to the next.
