Since 2005, Deep Woods has been part of the Fogarty Family’s Fogarty Wine Group, which also owns Evans & Tate in Margaret River, the iconic Lake's Folly vineyard in the Hunter Valley, Smithbrook in Pemberton and Millbrook Winery and Restaurant in the Perth Hills, Western Australia.

Located in the Yallingup Hills of northern Margaret River, close to the resort town of Dunsborough and the famed surf break at Yallingup, this stunning property is perched high on a ridge which unfolds into a picturesque secluded valley, bounded by stands of jarrah and marri trees; hence the name Deep Woods. The pristine environment also includes a large, natural spring.

The team at Deep Woods is passionately focused on producing quality wines from their management of the vineyard to fruit selection and winemaking techniques, and consistently produces award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Rosé and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, primarily from estate-grown fruit.

Stop by to taste the wines any day of the week, perhaps bring a picnic to enjoy with a glass of wine and take in the beautiful vineyard vista. Groups tastings for six or more guests should be arranged in advance.

Description

Chris, Jo, Lucas and Violette Davies are a young West Australian family and the grape growers and artisan wine producers at Windows Estate.

All Windows Estate vines are cared for meticulously and dry block grown to ensure maximum concentration of flavours. Chris, a passionate viticulturist, completes every vineyard operation single-handedly. Apart from the very day the grapes are harvested, no one else is ever allowed to touch his vines!

In the winery, the preference is toward ancient, hand-processing methods with minimal use of machinery. As one of few remaining wineries still using a manual basket press, Window’s Estate Basket Pressed Cabernet Merlot, Basket Pressed Cabernet Sauvignon and Basket Pressed Shiraz are special propositions in Margaret River.

Sustainability is a key focus and over 60% of the Estate is reserved as natural bushland. Minimal intervention is employed in grape growing and winemaking processes and as a certified organic vineyard only organic fertilisers are used.

Cellar Door tastings are available daily. We also make our own pickles on site at our picklery, using locally grown produce. These can also be tasted and purchased at our cellar door. Cheese platters can be purchased to enjoy at the Estate. Being a small, family business, bookings are requested for tasting groups of 6 or more people.
