Our Story

Driftwood Estate is a boutique winery set in the stunning Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, Western Australia. Established by Tom and Helen Galopoulos in 1989 on what had previously been a country retreat, the winery immediately received acclaim when its first wine, a Semillon produced in 1993, won a special commendation in a British competition.

Since then Driftwood has been rated one of the best wineries in Margaret River, received a 5 Star Winery in the Wine Companion and has won a series of awards at various shows throughout the years.

Our Wine

Kane Grove, has had a captivating passion for the South West for over 27 years after moving to Margaret River at the age of 8. After travelling the world from the wine regions of New Zealand, living in Europe and studying at university - it's wine that ultimately brought him back home.

Kane has been with us since 2017, crafting the wines and styles he believes will change and create new experiences of the very acclaimed, very special vines of Driftwood Estate.

“My philosophy is, as a wine-maker you can make good wine from lower quality grapes but you can really make exceptional wine from high-quality grapes capturing the personality and individual expression from each batch of fruit and letting it shine with minimal interference.” - Kane Grove
