About
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 amountof 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 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Large range of nicely done wines, at very good prices. Definitely worth a look, we had lovely service from Shirley, and the complimentary cheese and crackers was a nice touch.

This was part of our wine tour and we enjoyed the tasting in the cabin and hearing about the winery's history and development. A relaxed way to spend an hour or so

This winery was a recommendation from the local visitor information centre and it was one great recommendation. We were made very welcome by Ruth and after being very surprised by the range of wines and the prices, were very impressed by the quality. We also visited a few big name wineries in the Swan Valley with prices twice what Windy Creek charge but the quality was the same. So, great value for money, saved by someone who is part of the story, makes for a very compelling view of this winery. Wish we had a few like this in Victoria.

Great winery. Great wines, friendly and they even offer a bit of cheese while you taste ! Very affordable wines too. One of the best bars too, long wooden, curved, laminated panels, amazing thing. Would go back if I didn't live interstate!

Great wines at amazing prices. Excellent, friendly and knowledgeable service from Ruth who couldn't do enough for our group of 10 friends. We had a wine tasting ($5 pp accompanied by yummy cheese and biscuits), then moved out into the relaxed and picturesque grounds where we had a long lunch with our own picnic food, having bought some wines for lunch. Of course, we couldn't go past loading up on some of those great wines to take home too. Thank you Ruth and staff, we'll be back!

Having a laugh with the boss, Ruth, and enjoying the awesome wine at a ridiculous price. Most $12 a bottle. I like my wine, this was unbelievable. And on top of that you can bring your own food, pucnic, and as long as you buy wine, you can eat outside in the fantastic outdoor area. I would highly recommend you buy some wine, and also go there for a picnic. Amazing.

Great wines, lovely hosts, relaxed and beautiful surroundings. I make this one of my regular stops on each visit to the Swan Valley. The price of wines are extremely reasonable for the quality. And the complimentary cheese just adds that little extra to the whole experience.
