Jadran was established in 1914 by Vladimir (Wally) Radojkovich, who purchased 22 acres of land with a desire to establish a vineyard and create a winery. Since then, Jadran Wines has welcomed many generations of family members to the vineyard; most recently, Wally's grandson Paul in 1990. Jadran incorporates traditional and modern winemaking methods to create a distinctive character in the winery's expansive range which is made from fruit sourced locally and from the Western Australia's south-west. With a creative approach to winemaking, Jadran has won many medals in Wine Shows all over Australia.
Jadran Wines' range includes over 30 different fortified, still, sparkling wines and liqueurs. The collection of ports and liqueurs is bursting with interesting and exciting flavours to discover.

The name ‘Polguern’ is a heartfelt tribute to John and Sylwia Rower countries of origin. Sylwia was born in Poland, and John in Guernsey, Channel Islands and purchased the property in 2012.
Polguern Estate is home to two vineyards growing Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot. Originally planted in 1990, the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard at Polguern contains 1700 vines and is believed to be the oldest in the region. The strict pruning regime and dry growing technique reduces the yield to less than five tonnes per year, far less than the average vineyard of its size. Dry growing results in smaller grapes with a higher skin to juice ratio, producing a wine of greater complexity on the palate. Conversely, the Merlot vineyard was planted in 2008 and consists of approximately 500 vines. Less rigorous pruning is applied to these vines, and approximately three tonnes of fruit are produced annually.
The Estate’s flagship wine, “Pharoah’s Tribute”, is a product of the winery’s Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The Merlot grapes are used to produce a French Provence-style dry rose, Merlot-Cabernet blend and a Solero Port.
