Swan Valley Wine Adventure – Half Day Tour

This is the perfect wine tour for people who want to experience some of the best wines that the Swan Valley offers within an afternoon, at a relaxed pace, and with fellow winelovers.

On this small group, half day wine adventure in the Swan Valley, we visit four wineries that are all family owned, and have been hand-picked by us for their quality and history within the region. Take time to discuss the wines - sometimes with the winemaker themselves - and learn about the Swan Valley's history as Australia's second oldest wine growing region.

The wineries we select can change daily to ensure that you get the best possible experience on each day, and at each winery, and our guaranteed small groups mean that we have access to wineries that won't accommodate the big tour buses - so you get away from the regular beaten path and receive a more memorable and intimate tasting experience.

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

Tour Highlights

Departing Perth City approx 12.30pm, we will arrive in the Swan Valley around 1pm for our afternoon Wine adventure.

Set at a relaxed pace so that we have plenty of time for questions and discussion, you will also enjoy an included afternoon cheese platter featuring local West Australian cheeses, to compliment your wine tasting.

All tastings are included in your tour, including reserve and award winning wines, and you will have the chance to sample well over 30 wines - everything from a Verdelho to a Durif to a Muscat and a few surprises you wouldn't expect from such a warm wine region. Most of the wines you will try are produced small batch, so the only place you can find them is at the cellar door.

While we may be serious about our wine, you can rest assured this is definitely a fun afternoon meeting the producers and discovering the real gems of the Swan Valley.
