Swan Valley is not only one of Western Australia’s major wine regions, but it is also the oldest. Established in 1829, the Swan Valley wine region boasts some of the best wineries in the state. With incredible scenic views, gorgeous calm rivers and an abundance of fresh local produce, it is only a 25-minute drive from Perth CBD.
Below we have put together a list of some of the most fan-favourite wineries Swan Valley has to offer:
#1 Mandoon Estate
With dishes made from the finest local produce, this stylish restaurant has quickly become popular amongst the tourists and the locals. Mandoon Estate is one of Swan Valley’s newest boutique wineries that serve a range of on-tap craft beers, mouth-watering wood-fired pizzas and beef dishes fit for a king.
Sittella Winery, another young boutique winery, was chosen by Ray Jordan’s Guide as the best small producer of the year in 2016! Sittella offers stunning and idyllic rolling vineyards and serves a range of sparkling wine and Tuscan inspired cuisine. We recommend trying NV Sparkling Rosé and Tinta Rouge Shiraz Grenache Tempranillo as your delectable drop and the risotto with roasted Mediterranean vegetables for an appetising lunch.
#3 Coward & Black
Eat chocolate and swill wine or join one of their wine and chocolate master classes at Coward & Black! Don’t forget to try their unique and splendid range of chocolate liqueurs – a checklist must!
#4 Sandalford Winery
Sandalford was established in 1840 and is one of Perth’s oldest wineries. It continues to produce some of the finest quality boutique wines in the region and is ever so popular. Visitors can book a boat cruise up the Swan River to Sandalford Estate and sample their exquisite range of summery whites and rich oaky reds. Nothing more charming than that!
#5 Ugly Duckling Wines
It may be little but the Ugly Duckling has some major wine-infused gourmet pies on offer! Visitors will be pleasantly surprised by their variety of meat pies with a twist – from chicken, to leek and chardonnay, or steak, mushroom and Shiraz!
#6 Olive Farm Wines
Is there anything better than wine and cheese? Visitors can head down to Olive Farm Wines to sample at least four out of 35 wines, which are best served with cheese from the Cheese Barrel Café next door.
# 7 Harris Organic Wines
No pesticides, chemicals or fertilisers! Harris Organic Wines is Perth’s only organic winery and Australia’s only organic distillery! Visitors can buy veggies, shop fair trade and enjoy a mean vodka and brandy to sample or take home.
