Oakover Wines is a family-operated, boutique winery located in the heart of the SwanValley. The historic estate was one of the original properties established in the Swan Valley in the 1830’s and has been continuously used for grape growing since it was first cleared by convict labour. Some of the Swan Valley’s first grapevines were planted on Oakover land by Samuel Moore in the early 1850’s.
Inspired by Samuel Moore, and with three generations of Swan Valley heritage behind them, the Yukich family acquired the estate off Houghtons in 1990 and Oakover Wines was born. The family has been involved in grape growing in the Swan Valley since Nicholas Yukich purchased his first vineyard in 1929.
Today, Oakover Wines reflects a synergy between past and present. Mark Yukich and sons Graeme and Kim have continued the proud family tradition of growing quality grapes and producing premium wines reflecting the ‘terroir’ of the region.
True varietal character, depth of flavour and approachability, guide the philosophy of the winemaking team. In turn, the future for Oakover Wines lies in its ability to continue to produce quality wines that offer customers exceptional quality value for money.
