Swan Valley, the oldest wine region in WA, home to over 40 wineries
SWAN VALLEY, THE OLDEST WINE REGION IN WA, HOME TO OVER 40 WINERIES
Located 25 minutes from Perth City, the Swan Valley’s welcome is as warm as the sun that ripens the grapes. Visitors are embraced as if they are old friends, drawn in by a sharing and inclusive nature.
Rising from the rich earth and crowned by endless blue skies, the Swan Valley landscape is different from any other in Perth, stretching from the historic town of Guildford to the undulating green hills of Chittering. It’s a place where schedules aren’t needed, and clocks shouldn’t be watched. In fact, we encourage people to slow down, take time and relax, or run the risk of missing one of life’s greatest adventures.
A fanfare of WA’s oldest grapevines welcomes you to Perth’s pantry. Known as a food lover’s haven, a wine connoisseur’s delight and a naturalist’s dream. Just a short drive from the capital city or a leisurely cruise up the Swan River will deliver you into the heart of the district.
Home to world-class wineries, breweries and distilleries, the Swan Valley is bursting with music and flavour. Pull up on a patch of grass under a shady tree or dine at one of the many stylish venues along the riverside. Add a side dish of art, historical architecture and the oldest pub in Perth and it is a day out of rustic sophistication. Recipes and techniques handed down through generations make each meal, product and experience, special. Families are welcomed with homely hospitality by friendly locals. Arrive as a stranger, leave as a friend. Where there is a river, there is life, and the fertile plains of the Swan Valley is a symphony for the taste buds and soul.
