Full description
This is an all-inclusive tour, meaning that there are no other expenses on the day. Just a short drive from Perth's CBD and with historical commentary from your expert Tour Guide, your day begins with a very special visit to the Swan Valley's oldest winery for an exclusive behind-the-scenes winery tour to learn about the art of wine-making and discover the journey of wine from the vine to the bottle. You are then treated to an extensive private wine tasting session at the cellar door which is accompanied by a delicious artisan cheeseboard produced in the Swan Valley for morning tea. The second venue for the day is one of the most respected and historic wineries in the region where you can indulge yourself in a gourmet main course lunch prepared by an award-winning chef. Instead of a shared platter, you will have a choice of a variety of main course options with something to satisfy every taste (vegetarian and gluten free options available). Your lunch will also be accompanied by a glass of wine of your choice from a private cellar door tasting of the estates exclusive small batch wines only available at the cellar door. Following your delicious lunch, enjoy the afternoon with additional private wine tasting sessions at some of the regions most respected small producing wineries, (which have been run by the same family over multiple generations, preserving and developing their own respective wine making styles and traditions). Each winery has been carefully selected to showcase the best styles of wines the region has to offer and is known for. Your perfect day in the Swan Valley is capped off with a final stop at one of "Australia’s Top 100 Gourmet Experiences" to enjoy some decadent chocolate and gourmet food sampling and a chance to purchase some treats to take home.

It was a very pleasant trip, which we enjoyed very much together with the other people from the group. The driver was a pro, fun and friendly. The wineries were each one completely different, which we appreciated, the wine flowed in a stream, the lunch was very tasty. And finally a sweet spot in the chocolate shop. Very enjoyable, we will remember for a long time. Thank you

We were picked up from Perth Train station by Tim from an easy to find spot, and a total of 9 of us were on the tour. Tim gave us a lot of info about Perth and its history with wine. He also pointed out a few sights along the way to Swan Valley, which was unfortunately a little difficult to see as the transport's windows were partially covered. The description was good enough for us though. The first winery that we visited included a cheese plate, and we were given a great description of each wine and what we should eat with them. The second winery felt a little rushed, not helped by them having another tasting going on at the same time, but we still felt looked after and this included a tasty lunch at the same site, which we could select from a short list of options. The third winery had an interesting history and we were also very well looked after there. The fourth winery felt a little lacklustre in comparison to the others as the manager there didn't say much, but the wine was good

Tim was a fountain of knowledge on wine, different types, how it’s made, weather conditions, production, local vineyards and history etc. Friendly guy who was always happy to help. I was impressed that we were taken to the boutique award winning wineries, not the big commercially driven ones that most visit. Staff were friendly, plenty of varieties of wine to try, also a real learning experience. Lunch was fantastic too - we all had different plates yet commented on how delicious they were. Highly recommend this tour
