Swan Districts Wine Region is the wine hub that will show you how it’s done because it’s been doing it extremely well for over 180 years. Western Australia’s biggest, hottest and oldest vino districts has both historical wine industry mainstays and a slew of new, boutique producers. The local producers deliver much-celebrated chardonnay, chenin blanc and verdelho.
If you’re Perth-based, you are going to get to know the 20-minute drive to the Swan Districts well. There’s just no way one visit is enough to immerse yourself into this piece of cellar door heaven.
Most noteworthy in this outstanding melting pot of wine and food influences are speciality liqueurs, olives, cheeses, preserves, nuts and chocolate on offer at all times.– including Yugoslav, Italian and English which means there is a constantly replenished selection of local, gourmet, food to match with the wine.
The district covers a large area and includes a large group of wineries along the Avon River – known as the Swan Valley sub-region.
