Many Swan Valley wineries were amongst the first to be established in Western Australia (WA), making it the State's oldest wine-producing region. Today it's home to more than 40 family-owned vineyards offering wine tasting, many of which are still run by the descendants of Croatian and Italian families who came to the area in the early 1920s. And, as one of the State's most awarded wine regions, the Valley has a solid reputation for producing excellent white, red and fortified wines, so come visit and taste and find your favourite!
The tradition of small boutique Swan Valley wineries is what gives this region of Western Australia its charm. Among the big international players like Houghton and Sandalford, with their large tasting rooms, are many smaller wineries, where the winemakers and vineyard owners greet and offer you wine tasting at the cellar door.
Why not book a tour, sit back, relax and enjoy being chauffeured around the region. It's a great way to explore the Valley and sample the region's award-winning wines.
