Picking Purple Grapes

About the Swan Valley

Wine lovers rejoice! Western Australia’s very own Swan Valley is an easy 25-minute drive from Perth’s CBD. This iconic Australian wine region is home to some of the state’s oldest vines and brimming with friendly cellar doors, charming boutique wineries, craft breweries and top distilleries (think gin, vodka and rum).

The Valley is a warm climate wine region – perfect for grape growing and exploring any time of year. Its most famous wines are Chenin Blanc (which is coming back into fashion), Verdelho and Shiraz.

Make sure you try these delicious drops along with the other varieties that thrive here including Grenache, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The region’s famous fortified wines are also a must-try.

 

Relax and chat with local winemakers about their proud 188-year heritage. The first vines were planted way back in 1829 and it was 4 years before the first wine was produced. There are generations of viticulture tradition here in the Swan Valley and a fascinating Indigenous and Mediterranean back story.

 

There’s also a new and exciting generation of winemakers, microbrewers, food producers, restaurateurs, artists and boutique hoteliers adding to the allure of this region. 

 

Delicious foodie options, mouth-watering local produce and picturesque lunch spots abound in the Swan Valley.
