In Detail

Bruce Jukes is a long-time local winemaker with a great reputation. For many years he led the winemaking team at Pierro in Margaret River, and says a lengthy stint at Niebaum-Coppola in the Napa Valley gave him great confidence in his philosophies. An Agronomist, Bruce approaches winemaking from an agricultural point of view, focussing immensely on soil health and sustainable farming, which he believes reaps the best rewards for the wine and the environment. Bruce lives at the winery with his family.

The Wines
Domaine Naturaliste makes three ranges of wine from classic Margaret River varietals to showcase his artisanal approach. The range names are the Discovery Series, Direction Series and Flagship Series. His Artus Chardonnay and Morus Cabernet Sauvignon were major winners at the 2018 International Wine Challenge in London, each receiving the trophies for Best Margaret River Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
