Vineyards


Woodlands produces wines from it's two vineyards, both located in the Wilyabrup Valley. The Woodlands Vineyard was established in 1973 on Caves Road, while the Woodlands Brook Vineyard was established in 2001 on Puzey Road, 3 kilometers to the north-east of Woodlands. 

Woodlands vineyards consists primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux blending varieties. Each variety is planted in it's particular location due to the soil and aspect of the plot. All vines are dry grown and farmed using traditional and biodynamic methods.

Both of Woodlands' vineyards both lie within the Wilyabrup Valley of Margaret River. The Wilyabrup Valley is a series of gentle slopes found alongside tributaries to the Wilyabrup Brook, a water system in the heart of the Margaret River wine region.

The weather in the Wilyabrup Valley is characterised by high winter rainfall and long dry summers. The Indian Ocean surrounds the region to the north and west, providing a moderating effect on the temperature.



Wilyabrup Soil Diagram

As can be seen in the diagram above, the Wilyabrup Valleys are a number of separate locations forming undulating to rolling low hills lying below the Cowaramup Upland. The valleys are normally 80 -100 metres above sea level and are composed of yellow - brown gravelly duplex and red-brown gravelly graduations. The gentle slops (W3) and moderately inclined slopes (W4) combine with high gravel content to ensure good drainage. The Wilyabrup Valley slopes also have a high clay content, enabling good water retention through summer for vine development. Woodlands’ dry grown vines prosper on the Wilyabrup soils. The gravel subsoil ensures good drainage, while the high clay content enables good water retention throughout summer.
