There is so much to experience in Swan Valley. These wineries are based in a rich past that comes all the way from Europe to Western Australia.
The History of Swan Valley Wineries
The region’s wineries date back hundreds of years, and the wines they produce are the result of a unique combination of people, knowledge of wines, and the right climate.
The culture of wine tours today was built upon the rich history of the diverse peoples of Swan Valley’s past. Swan Valley is Western Australia’s oldest wine region, and it’s close to the oldest in all of Australia.
For at least 40,000 years, the Nyoongar Aboriginal people of the Wadjuk tribe lived in what is now Swan Valley. It was officially settled as The Swan River Colony in 1829. Soon after, in the 1830’s, botanist Thomas Waters recognised that the climate in the region was capable of producing wines that rivaled those made in France, Italy, and Spain, and Swan Valley’s journey to the wine region it is today began.
Following both World Wars, Europeans from Croatia and Italy flooded the region. They brought their skills and knowledge of wine from Europe and pushed the area further towards what it is today. Compared to the other wine regions of Australia, Swan Valley is the most similar to those found in Southern Europe. By the time the second World War was over, Swan Valley was the largest wine region in Australia.
Today, Swan Valley has grown into one of the largest wine regions in Australia. Swan Valley boasts over 40 gorgeous and unique wineries, and guests can enjoy everything from rich reds to unique blends and Swan Valley’s local specialty: Verdelho.
