Set in the foothills of the Darling Escarpment, south east of Waroona, Drakesbrook was established in 1998 by Bernard Worthington after four years of searching for his perfect site. The vineyard is elevated at 265 metres above sea levels and features well-drained gravel-loam soils, essential for quality fruit production. The winery takes its name from the Drakesbrook River which flows through it.
Drakesbrook Fine Wines make four labels from classic wines through to rare, hand-made small batch wines with unique varieties. Varieties include Semillon, Chardonnay, Vermentino, Savagnin, Fiano, Viognier, Shiraz, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Tempranillo, Grenache, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
