Woody Nook prides itself on boutique winemaking that is laid back but highly awarded. In the past decade the wines have won more than 200 awards including 3 trophies and a bucketful of medals.
It all began in 1978 when original owners Jeff and Wynn Gallagher purchased a Margaret River property that was home to a saw mill with the intention of planting vines. The first cuttings were planted in 1982 and the first Woody Nook wines made in 1987 in a winery built solely from the native materials growing on the property. In 2000 Peter and Jane Bailey became owners.
The range includes sweet to dry table wines made from Margaret River’s signature varieties alongside a few surprises including a Graciano, Tempranillo, Chenin Blanc and a Port.
Woody Nook’s friendly cellar door offers complimentary wine tastings from 10am to 5pm daily. An onsite gift shop stocks a range of souvenirs and there is also the unique opportunity to “adopt a vine.”
Oozing with rustic, cozy charm, The Nookery Café seats up to 120 people and is set against an impressive backdrop of jarrah and marri forest with indoor and outdoor dining options to suit all seasons. The menu is classic and hearty and there are great options for kids, who will also love the playground and lawn area. Open for breakfast and lunch daily from 8.30am.
The owner’s former residence on the property is now available as a holiday rental, complete with breathtaking vineyard views and breakfast at the Nookery Café.
