Oakover Wines Is A Family Owned And Operated Winery Located In The Swan Valley, Western Australia.
The historic estate was one of the original properties established in the Swan Valley in the 1830s with early viticulture established by Samuel Moore in the early 1850s. In 1990, the vineyards were acquired by the Yukich family from Houghton Wines followed by the establishment of a winery and the introduction of Oakover Wines. The Yukich family have been involved in the Swan Valley region since Nicholas Yukich purchased his first block of land in 1929. Today the third-generation owners continue to grow, craft and share Western Australian wines of character, generosity, and approachability.
The family continue to invest in the future of their wine venture with Tony Robinson as COO, Matty Trent managing our vineyards, and Dan Charter crafting our wines. Taking the reins at Oakover Wines in 2019 Tony Robinson brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business. As a winemaker he has produced wines for innovative and award-winning wine brands through Australia, he is an active wine communicator, and has judged wines at a number of national and international wine shows. Tony brings an innovative perspective to grape growing and winemaking striving for great wine quality, sustainable practices, and always working to make wines that are enjoyed by our customers.
Matty Trent joined Oakover in 2019 bringing over 20 years’ experience with him and a passion for alternative varieties and sustainable viticulture. Matty has worked with a variety of production systems and wine styles in Margaret River, Frankland River and many regions surrounding Adelaide. Dan Charter has been making wines with Oakover since 2014, having worked in the wine industry for over 10 years. Dan continues to hone his craft working with parcels of fruit from premium regions in Western Australia and has been recognised for his award winning wines, receiving gold medals at the Wine Show of Western Australia, Swan Valley, and the Australian Small Winemakers Show.
