Bruce Dukes, a long-time local winemaker with a great reputation, led the winemaking team at Pierro in Margaret River for many years, and says a lengthy stint at Niebaum-Coppola in the Napa Valley gave him great confidence in his philosophies. As an Agronomist and winemaker, Bruce approaches winemaking with a focus on soil health and sustainable farming, which he believes reaps the best rewards for the wine and the environment.
Domaine Naturaliste produces a range of wines from the classic Margaret River varietals with a focus on Chardonnay and Cabernet, to showcase Bruce's artisanal approach. These delicious and balanced wines have received international and domestic acclaim, including being awarded Best Value Winery 2020 by the Halliday Companion for consistently over-delivering on quality at various price points.
Domaine Naturaliste now has it's own estate in Wilyabrup with a 21 Ha vineyard and a picturesque Cellar Door nestled among the vines. Open from 10am - 5pm daily, the Cellar Door offers a relaxing space to enjoy varied tasting options including the signature seated wine flights of Domaine Naturaliste luxury ranges accompanied by charcuterie or cheese. Bookings are recommended.
