Woodlands vineyard was established in 1973 by David & Heather Watson on Caves Road in Wilyabrup, and was one of the first five vineyards to be planted in the Margaret River Wine Region. David and Heather aimed to create wines to emulate the great vineyards of Bordeaux.Stuart Watson took the reins as Winemaker in 2002 and Andrew Watson joined Woodlands full time in 2005. Stuart and Andrew (pictured right) carry on the family love for Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet blends.
In 2007 the Watson family purchased the Woodlands Brook vineyard, located on Puzey road in the Wilyabrup Valley.
Woodlands now has an annual production of 12,000 cases, specializing in red wine, and remains owned and operated by the Watson family. A sister brand owned by the group is Watson Family Vineyards.
