Founded in 2019 by the Yukich family and situated on one of Australia’s oldest wineries with original grapevine plantings dating back to the 1830s, Nikola Estate produces over 30 wines annually with 70 hectares under vine. Apart from the traditional varieties of chenin blanc, chardonnay, verdelho, sauvignon blanc, shiraz, tempranillo and grenache, Nikola Estate also crafts wines from its experimental vineyard of fiano, nero d’avola, mencia, tinto and prosecco. The old fortifieds that date back to 1976, are used in its exclusive Rare Fortifieds range.
With chenin blanc as the hero varietal for the Swan Valley, Nikola Estate crafts three chenin sparklings as well as its traditional chenin blancs. This year alone it has achieved several prestigious awards including Best Boutique Winery 2023 and chief winemaker Damian Hutton receiving WA Winemaker of the Year 2023.
This is a winery forged on tradition, while embracing contemporary wine styles. It will continue to expand its tempranillo and Italian varietal plantings as it crafts wines conducive to our balmy Mediterranean, relaxed climate and lifestyle.
