In Detail

Ivan Kosovich arrived at Fremantle in 1911 and, after work in the goldfields and south-west forests, bought Swan Valley land for a vineyard with brothers Nick and Matt. By the age of 18, Ivan's son John had become responsible for winemaking and today he produces Chardonnay, Verdelho, Cabernet, Chenin, Shiraz and Merlot. A Kosovich vineyard near Manjimup also produces the Bronze Wing label, which features Chardonnay, Verdelho, Shiraz and Merlot. Westfield features an underground cellar built in 1922, and the winery's fortifieds can only be purchased at the cellar door.
