Overview

Windy Creek Estate, formally Cobanov Wines, was first established in 1937 by Anthony Cobanov. He had left Croatia in 1924 and spent 13 years cutting sleepers in the south-west to enable him to put a deposit on this Swan Valley property. In 1937 he bought the fertile coastal plain land that is still the core of the family business and sent for his wife and sons. They grew grapes for dried fruit production but made a small amount of wine for the Perth immigrant community. The family has continued to produce wines for 75 years and we have been selling fruit to other wineries for approximately 35 years. The Windy Creek Estate label was first released in 1980. Tony Cobanov, the current winemaker, entered the industry as a third generation winemaker and is very passionate about the Swan Valley and its lifestyle. He has 3 sons Joshua, Callum and Rohan so it is a distinct possibility that this will become a 4th generation business and he can't think of anything better than that. Today, the winery employs modern and traditional wine making techniques. Our white styles are crisp and friendly showing big tropical fruit finishing with a nice mouth feel. Reds have an earthy, savoury aroma with full fruit and well-balanced tannin. Medium to full bodied. Our fortifieds are old, rich and luscious. Good Oak.

Although this vineyard is not on the main roads, it is worth a short detour to get there. The staff took time and was patience with us explaining the different wines that we were tasting. Ended up buying a few bottles at the end.
