About the winery
After nearly three decades working closely with producers in Margaret River, Western Australia, renowned winemaker Bruce Dukes launched Domaine Naturaliste – his own range of highly acclaimed wines. An homage to the region where he honed his craft, Domaine Naturaliste is a space for Bruce to demonstrate his mastery of the classic Margaret River varietals. Australia’s most influential and respected wine critic, Mr. James Halliday awarded Domaine Naturaliste the Best Value Winery in Australia in 2020. Bruce Dukes, Domaine Naturaliste’s Winemaker/Director emotionally stated “It is an honour that out of around 2600 producers in Australia, Domaine Naturaliste of Margaret River has been chosen by Australia’s greatest and most experienced wine expert for this award. As a grape grower and winemaker, I feel blessed to be in Margaret River. It is an exciting frontier" With intuitive flair based on decades of experience, Bruce strikes a tender balance between taste, fragrance and texture.

History & Geography
Bruce draws on decades of local and international winemaking experience – including four years at Francis Ford Coppola’s Niebaum-Coppola winery in California and a significant tenure at Pierro Winery locally. His time spent in California helped Bruce hone his exacting and confident approach. Cradled by the Indian and Great Southern Oceans, the Margaret River wine region enjoys a gentle maritime climate of cool wet winters and warm dry summers. Plentiful, pure water and idyllic Indian summers provide superb growing conditions for many grape varietals and is also superb for people. The region’s geologically ancient decomposed granite soils are well suited to grape growing. Combined with the favourable climate and own-rooted grape cultivars, the vines and wines are alive with a vivid core flavour and generous texture. Bruce and his team ensure healthy soils and balanced vines to produce the finest quality fruit.
