A true hidden gem right on the doorstep of Perth, the picturesque Bickley Valley Wine and Cider Trail is a beautiful region to visit at all times of the year. Often you will find that the winemaker or owner is the person pouring your tastings, so you really get 'Up Close' to the locals here. Most of the products you will taste are not available in shops or restaurants, making this a unique wine tasting and cellar door experience for both visitors and locals.

Boasting stunning views of endless vineyards and orchards, the Bickley Valley is filled with fantastic family-run boutique wineries and award-winning artisan cider - made right on the orchard! Each guest will enjoy a tasting paddle of five signature ciders while enjoying those views over the apple orchards.

You will also visit two premium local wineries for an extensive list of tastings, including rare varietals (some of which you won't find anywhere else in WA) and 20 year old fortified wines. Enjoy a cheese and antipasto platter on the deck to really take in the beauty of your surroundings and enjoy the company of like-minded people.

Like all of our tours, the day is set at a relaxed pace to allow plenty of time to explore, taste and speak to the local growers and winemakers. You can also purchase freshly picked, locally grown seasonal fruit to take home with you. As we leave the hills, we will do a quick stop for a unique view and photo opportunity of the entire city landscape.

Our tours are guaranteed to be a maximum of 12 people, so that you get a personal and memorable experience.
