Woody Nook

Western Australia | Margaret River

Our Review

Woody Nook, with a backdrop of 24ha of majestic marri and jarrah forest, may not have the high profile of the biggest names in Margaret River but it has had major success in wine shows over the years. Founded by Jeff and Wynn Gallagher in ’78, with the first vines planted in ’82, it was purchased by Peter and Jane Bailey in ’00. Their investment was transformative, constructing a new winery, a gallery tasting room for larger groups and an alfresco dining area by the pond. The original vineyard remains, planted to regional stalwarts such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot and chardonnay; further plantings were added in ’07, including tempranillo and graciano. -JAMES HALLIDAY
