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.

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.

Visited as part of a Swan Valley bus trip. 80 year old family winery with lovely vibe. Picnic area with tables out the back ideal for familiezls. Wines were cheap - typically $12 per bottle- but quality was very good. Large range of whites, reds and fortifieds. A very pleasant surprise.

This was the first time to have ever visited this winery.  It was surprisingly large winery and had a good range of wines on offer.  We enjoyed several of the wine tastings and sampled as many as we purchased.  We were on a swan valley tour and this was the last port of call for the day so was only a relatively brief visit. It may have been short pit stop but an enjoyable one.

We love Windy Creek, from their wine to their customer service.
The setting is absolutely beautiful, for me it always has been but it has come along way since I first went in 2010.
This time I took a few mums with me and even the none wine drinkers got in on the tastings.
Its a must see for all

We visited this winery today on a wine tour, straight away we felt uncomfortable the lady who was hosting the tasting was especially rude to our group. She made multiple sarcastic comments to us, when asking what wine she recommended she said ‘just choose, the other group did’ and when I asked for a specific wine she then said ‘you can’t go back and fourth so just pick’. She was making comments and giving us nasty looks during the tasing. We will never visit this ‘family run business’ again. It’s a shame because this experience ruined our wine tour. Never again, we would NOT recommend.
