Windy Creek Estate, formally Cobanov Wines, was first established in 1937 by Ante 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 80 years and we have been selling fruit to other wineries for approximately 40 years.
The Windy Creek Estate label was first released in 1980. Tony Cobanov, the current wine maker, entered the industry as a third generation wine maker 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 producing unique flavours across many varietals. Crisp dry whites, luscious late harvests and earthy, complex reds and glorious sticky fortified wines.
