Be a Winemaker for a Day - Swan Valley
This Award Winning tour is for all who love wine, would like to learn more about wine and those who dream of being a winemaker.
We start the day collecting you from your accommodation in Perth City in our deluxe air conditioned coach for a short 20 minute drive to the Swan Valley. Our 1st winery, Lancaster Estate is set amongst the vines and you will enjoy a wonderful cheese platter and their very fine wines. This is one of the Valleys best boutique wineries.
A short drive then takes us to Sandalford where you will experience blending your own wine under the guidance of an experienced winemaker at Sandalford Estate. After a behind the scenes tour of the magnificent Sandalford Estate you will learn about the wine making process up to one of the most critical components, the blending stage. Then your new found knowledge is put to the test by individually creating your own original blend of wine.
This is followed by wine tasting and a wonderful gourmet vineyard platter lunch with a glass of wine at Carilley Estate. This winery overlooks the Suzzanne Brook and is set in delightful cottage gardens.
After lunch we visit one of the oldest family run wineries in the Valley. Here the owners Ruth and Tony Cobanov will introduce you to their extensive range of ports, fortifield, and very good value wines.
We finish the day at the Chocolate Company sampling one of their many irresistible truffles.
We drop you back in Perth around 4.30pm.
