A Pioneer in the Swan Valley A Pioneer in the Swan Valley

170 years in the making

Cam-Kim-Mark-at-vinesBW-Wines

Vineyards at Oakover Estate were initially established in the 1850’s. This pioneering Swan Valley location saw Samuel Moore plant his first grapes in this ribbon grants parcel, because of its unique soil and climate, riverside. Moore knew these factors meant it should become one of the best Swan Valley wineries.

Today Oakover Wines reflect a synergy between this heritage and the present. Mark Yukich and sons Graeme and Kim have continued the proud family tradition of growing quality grapes and producing premium wines reflecting the ‘terrior’ of the region.

True varietal character, depth of flavour and approachability, guide the philosophy of the winemaking team – produce quality wines that offer exceptional quality and value.

We like to think Oakover Wines has done more than deliver on Moore’s dream, and so too does our Swan Valley wine team.

Vineyard Manager

Matty Trent

Matty’s first exposure to the world of wine occurred while working in retail liquor in the early 90s. The spark was lit when he was sent off by his employer to do the Wines of WA wine appreciation course.

The production of wine grapes became an area of great interest, particularly due to his farming background. To pursue his passion for this versatile fruit, Matty relocated to Margaret River in 1997 to study Viticulture via distance education at Charles Sturt University.

Working in Margaret River, Frankland River and in the wine regions surrounding Adelaide, he has been exposed to a variety of production systems and wine styles. His strong interest in sustainability and alternative varieties of wine make him a valuable addition to one of the state’s most historic winemaking sites, as this new brand continues to grow.
