Great wine made in the vineyard

Brookwood Estate

Great value small-batch wines
 
Brookwood Estate was born from a combination of creativity and a passion for agriculture after a discussion over a winery lunch in the winter of 1995. Six months after considering a sea change to Margaret River Trevor and Lyn Mann relocated to the famous wine region in pursuit of an adventure into Viticulture. The only experience the pair had in the field of wine making and viticulture was sampling plenty of the product. They had a vision and believed in themselves; possibly not knowing the full extent of their undertaking but sure of the end reward. 

The result was huge learning curve, the vineyard was planted in September 1996 and here-in began the journey. Working in other industries to support their new venture Trevor and Lyn learned by being naturally inquisitive, reading, asking and learning as they met the challenge that they had set themselves. Learning so much about themselves and their new chosen industry along the way.

The winemaking philosophy behind the Driftwood wines is one of simplicity – quality wines are made in the vineyard.
