Swan Valley Wine Tours aren’t just for women!

30th March 2018

Wine tours aren't just for women!

If you are a man, chances are you haven’t been on many Swan Valley wine tours, or on any wine tours at all for that matter.

Why? Your reason will be as individual as you are, but it seems that some men tend to think that wine tours are just for women.

Some articles even suggest that many men don’t drink wine in pubs, because they’re simply too embarrassed to order it, as they think it’s not ‘blokey’ enough!

Is this the case? Is it peer pressure or do many men just not like wine? Or, perhaps men just really like saying the word ‘pint’?

Founder and Director of Top Gun Tours, Matthew Attwood, is a big fan of wine and of wine tours. And you guessed it… He is a man.

So, why aren’t Swan Valley wine tours just for women?

In our latest blog we take you through a few reasons why they’re not and why men can go on a wine tour too.

1. Men drink wine too

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but men do drink wine too.

Look around you next time you go out for dinner or a drink. See the men with wine glasses in their hands? They’re not just drinking beer and spirits, are they?

So, if you want to give wine a go, or head off on your first wine tour, forget this “But I’m a man!” business and get going!

Men Drink Wine Too

2. A Swan Valley wine tour is a great date idea

Perhaps you’re not a huge fan of wine, but want to impress the new woman in your life?

A Swan Valley wine tour is a great date idea. It is romantic, classy, fun and a little different. Chances are your date has never been taken on a wine tour for a date before either.

Been with your love a long time? Then a wine tour is a special way to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.

3. It’s the perfect way to catch up with other couples

Sick of couples’ dinner parties? We don’t blame you.

Why not suggest a Swan Valley wine tour for your next catch up, for something different?

Not only will you likely be in the good books with your partner and impress her girlfriends, but with a tour bus driving you around, none of you will have to worry about having a few too many and getting home safely.

4. Not all wine is feminine

Perhaps you may not want to drink sparkling wine or rosé, because it just feels that little bit too ‘feminine’ for you – we can understand that.

However, it is important to remember that not all wine is feminine.

A glass of a full bodied red wine such as Shiraz, served with a sizeable and sumptuous sirloin steak, doesn’t seem very feminine to us. Neither does a glass of Sauvignon Blanc with a seafood platter now that we think about it.

You don’t have to be a woman to drink wine or go on Swan Valley wine tour. Men can join in on all the fun too!

So, get a group of friends together, or arrange a surprise for the love in your life, and book a Swan Valley wine tour today! It’s only 25 minutes away from Perth.

"Many thanks for being a perfect host to us on Saturday, we had so much fun! We all enjoyed the venues, food, wine and sweet treats at the end. I would (and I will) recommend your business to my friends and colleagues, you have a great energy and a good sense of humour."



"Matt is a true gentleman. He works hard to make his tours the best. You're looked after 100% and feel very relaxed from start to finish! If you love boutique beers and a great friendly hospitality Top Gun Tours won't disappoint :-) thank you"



"I just wanted to say thanks for doing everything possible to give us a great experience during our beer tour on 30th Dec. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to commend you on your service and professionalism. You made the brewery tour one to remember, we won't hesitate in recommending you to our friends and we'll definitely book another tour with you sometime in the future."



"Thanks for the awesome brewery tour Matt! Everything went so well and it was great to just relax and know that the day was in good hands. Thanks so much, everyone had a ball!!"



"Awesome tour once again (my 3rd time now, it's that good). Matt is a legend, can't speak highly enough of him (even though he wore his Hawthorn jersey all day after the grand final). If you're looking for a fun day out, get onto the liquid gold brewery tour. Looking forward to the next trip with Top Gun in the future!"



"This tour really was 'Top Gun'. Premier venues, tastings, lunch and coach travel with added fizz from Matt. We have been on wine trips around the world - California, France and Spain in particular - and this trip was up there with the very best. Close to Perth, short distance between wineries so more tastings and less travel time. Would recommend a visit to the Swan Valley. Many thanks again Matt for a fantastic day."
