Description

Established in 1954 by migrant Tony Bakranich, a self-taught winemaker, ownership has since passed to Velko and Helen Bakranich, the next generation of the family. Thankfully, nothing much has changed over the years.

James Halliday notes Highway Wines as “A survivor of another era, when literally dozens of such wineries plied their business in the Swan Valley”. Over 10.5 hectares of land producing over 100 tonnes of fruit each year. Vintage Port is the most popular but they produce about 20 types including ports, muscat, tokay and sherries. Some of the wine is sold in bottles but the majority is sold in two-litre flagons and those who want to bring their own containers. Vintage port is the most popular drop in Highway's fortified range and all the grapes come from the 10.5 hectare vineyard, which produces more than 100 tonnes of fruit each year.

Sales are made through the cellar door; open by appointment only.

Description

Mark Kraljevich and wife Dorothy run the 12-hectare Twin Hills property, which has been in the family since 1955. Prior to that time, Twin Hills was a winery located in the Perth foothills ù a location chosen by Mark's father Steve, who arrived from Croatia in August 1926 (age 18). The Baskerville vineyard proved much more yielding, Mark growing about 50 tonnes of fruit each year and producing a dry and sweet Verdelho, Cabernet Shiraz and Shiraz. The grapes are picked when very ripe, and Mark delivers the full-bodied and fruity wines to individual customers around Perth each week.
