Third generation Swan Valley locals, the Yukich family, have completed the acquisition of Houghton Winery and associated assets from Accolade Wines.

The Houghtons property will be re-named Nikola Estate, after patriarch Nikola Yukich who planted vines in the Valley over 90 years ago.

Director Graeme Yukich says, “We are very proud to be able to bring this iconic vineyard and heritage site back into WA ownership.”

Dr Tony Robinson has been appointed COO of the merged site and will be focussing on premium wine production, events and and a desire to grow tourism and visitation to the Swan Valley.
