Nikola Estate

Western Australia | Swan Valley

Our Review

While the Nikola brand may be new to the Swan Valley, the Yukich family behind it is anything but. To start at the end in 2019, Houghton Estate in the Swan Valley (vineyards, historic cellar door, est 1836, and the winemaking facility) was purchased by brothers Graeme and Kim Yukich (3rd generation) from the private equity Carlyle Group, forming what is now the Nikola Estate. Winemaker Damian Hutton has moved from a long history at Millbrook (Fogarty Group) to assume the mantle at Nikola. Looking further back in time prior to the current state of play, the first acquisition of Houghton property by the Yukich family occurred in 1989 (45ha sold to Mark Yukich, 2nd generation) which precipitated the formation of Oakover Wines in the 1990s. Prior to that, the Yukich Brothers wine company was formed in 1953 by Nikola Yukich. -ERIN LARKIN
