Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia

Swan Valley


Located just 25 minutes’ drive from Perth, Western Australia’s oldest wine region, the beautiful Swan Valley, surrounds the upper reaches of the Swan River.

Some of Western Australia's finest wines and local produce can be found in the Swan Valley, home to over 100 wineries and numerous gourmet food producers.  A favourite among Perth locals, the region holds a truly unique history influenced by the traditional owners of the land and offers a vast landscape full of vineyards and natural beauty to be explored at any time of the year.

The Swan District has a warm to hot Mediterranean climate. It is very dry during ripening and harvest, with most rainfall occurring during winter and spring.  While during the growing season the region experiences relatively high temperatures, it benefits from the famous Fremantle Doctor ─ a south-westerly sea breeze.  The soils of the Swan District are typically young alluvial soils; very deep, with excellent moisture retention capacity. 

HISTORY

The Swan District is Western Australia’s oldest wine region, having been planted by English settlers soon after their arrival in 1829. For almost 150 years it was the only significant wine-producing region in Western Australia. 

It is an actively multicultural area, with the descendants of early Yugoslav, Italian and English migrants continuing the region's winemaking traditions.
