Jane Brook Estate

Begin your day enjoying the finer things in life at Jane Brook Estate. The Atkinson family have been producing high quality wines for over 40 years. Sample a range of premium varietals and sparklings at the cellar door and, if the weather is on your side, grab a Garden Basket from Jane Brook’s Pantry and Cellar and enjoy a “posh picnic” brunch with a bottle of famous Sparkling Gold wine on the alfresco deck. Life doesn't get much better than that.

Houghtons Winery and Cafe

Just a couple of kilometres up Great Northern Highway, you’ll find one of Australia’s oldest and most awarded operating wineries. The light and airy cellar door provides a delightful setting for sampling an extensive white and red range including semillons, chardonnays, shirazs and cabernets. While you’re there, pop into the museum and cellar where the legendary ‘Moondyne Joe’ was captured in 1869. Today it showcases historic winemaking items and local artworks.

Sitella Winery and Restaurant

From the old to the new, travel another couple of kilometres north along Great Northern Highway for a must visit on the Swan Valley circuit. Take in the stunning views from the verandah as you sample verdelho, chardonnay, shiraz, tempranillo and petit verdot at the cellar door. To top up on brunch, we recommend enjoying the gourmet selection of Sittella’s Winemaker’s Plate, which is reflective of the Swan Valley's signature food style.
