John Kosovich Wines is a family owned and operated winery located in Western Australia’s Swan Valley. We focus on quality boutique wines, which has been a hallmark of our brand for many years. Established in 1922, we are one of the oldest wineries operating in the Swan Valley and the oldest still run by the founding family.
Please visit us in our unique underground cellar tasting area, situated just 15 minutes drive along Great Northern Highway from Midland, approximately 35 minutes from Perth city. Here visitors get to walk past and enjoy the aroma of our luscious liqueur wines slowly and carefully ageing in barrels, before going downstairs to enter our tasting area and sample our fine premium wine range.

This wine is a culmination of years of hard work beginning with the legacy of Ivan who purchased the property in the Swan Valley in 1922, planting the first vines and building our underground cellar. It was John in the 1950’s who took over and realised that table wines were the way of the future rather than sherry and claret styles. The Chenin Blanc vines were amongst the first replantings in 1962 along with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
2018 was a great year in the Swan Valley and the Chenin fruit for this wine was hand harvested in February, gently pressed and cold fremented before being left on fine lees in stainless steel for 6 months prior to bottling. The wine was then put away to develop the lovely toasty lime and honesuckle characters that this variey is renowned for. We waited patiently for five years prior to releasing the wine in July 2023.
