winemaker of the year: julian langworthy, deep woods estate

What is one word that describes a great wine?
I think many people would say balance.
And that's what his [Langworthy's] wines have
beyond compare."

at home in margaret river

Growing up in Margaret River, Julian was immersed in the vineyards and wineries of the region from a young age. His career took him across the globe, with vintages in France and Canada, before heading to South Australia to take up senior winemaking roles in the Barossa, Clare Valley and Coonawarra. Julian’s passion for creating regionally distinctive wines led him back to Margaret River and to Deep Woods eight years ago, in the heart of the region he describes as “winemaking nirvana”. Julian describes being selected as James Halliday’s 2019 Winemaker of the Year as “a huge thrill and a huge honour."
