What you can expect
If you're looking for an in-depth and personalised wine tour, then this is the one for you.
On this Up Close and Local tour, it's not just about tasting a wide range of amazing varietals at the best Swan Valley wineries. They go beyond the cellar door and take you behind the scenes into the winery and vineyard to get an insight into wine production, the unique terroir of this region and to meet the winemakers. This behind-the-scenes insight is unique to each tour depending on what stage in the vintage it is and what is happening in the winery on the day - you may get to see picking, crushing, blending or even experience a barrel tasting - you just never know what the winemaker will have in store for!
Up Close and Local Tours have great relationships with some of the best winemakers in the region, and with this insider knowledge the itinerary for each tour is thoughtfully crafted to ensure their guests get the best possible experience, each and every day. Often this means that you may get access to experiences that are not available to the general public.
Guaranteed small group sizes also mean that they give you access to wineries that won't accommodate the big tour buses - so you get away from the crowds and off the regular beaten tourist path for a more intimate and one-on-one tasting experience. All of the wineries they visit are family owned, and are personally hand-picked by for their quality winemaking skills, as well as their historical significance to the region – and obviously because they have some excellent wines for you to taste!
This is an ‘all inclusive’ tour – with all wine tastings included in your tour price (including reserve and award winning wines), plus a gourmet platter lunch with a glass of Swan Valley wine and exclusive behind the scenes experiences.
You will have the chance to sample well over 50 wines throughout the day - everything from a Verdelho to a Durif to a Muscat. Most of the wines you will try are produced small batch, so the only place you can find them is at the cellar door. This is the ultimate wine tour for people that really want to experience the best hidden gems in the Swan Valley.
The day is set at a relaxed pace so that we have plenty of time for discussion at the wineries and with your fellow wine lovers.
Our tours are guaranteed to be a maximum of 12 people, so that you get a personalised and memorable experience.
