Winter is coming to the Swan Valley

24th May 2019

Winter may have finally been and gone on the north side of the wall, but winter is still yet to come to the Swan Valley this year and it’s now drawing very near.

Winter Rain, Swan Valley

Thankfully, there is no snow, giants or white-walkers to harm us there, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still be well-prepared when embarking on our journey. 

So, how will you prepare for a day in the Swan Valley in winter? We’ve compiled some tips to help. 

Keep warm in the Swan Valley

Whilst you may want to wear a pretty floral dress, or a pair of your new shorts on your next visit to the Swan Valley, it may not be the most practical choice this winter.

With the average Swan Valley winter temperature estimated to be around 15 degrees during the day and 7 degrees, at night, you might want to think again.

Opt for layers instead. Think woollen dresses, pants, jackets, stockings, cardigans and scarves – this way, you can keep warm and remove a layer when that Swan Valley sun suddenly shines upon you (we know, it’s unpredictable).

Satisfy your hunger in the Swan Valley

Nothing warms you up and satisfies your hunger quite like a hot winter’s meal. 

Swan Valley is home to some of the best restaurants in WA, making it the perfect location to warm up with a hot winter’s meal. And with over twenty different restaurants to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice.

From freshly-baked warm bread served with beautiful oils, to drool worthy beef cheek braised in red wine, a homemade winter’s soup, sweet and heavenly warm desserts, and much more, the Swan Valley certainly has your hot winter meals covered.

Stay hydrated in the Swan Valley

Do you know what else helps keep you warm in winter? Wine! 

And what better place to warm up with wine, than in the Swan Valley?

Red wine and fortified wine are the two best ‘warm and fuzzy wine’ options and you can try these on a wine tour, or on your own.

Olive Farm Wines have a range of fortified wines from a Tawny Port, a Liqueur Muscat, to even a Liqueur Shiraz. If you prefer to stick with red wine, Sandalford Winery and Sittella Winery have some beautiful options to choose from. 

Plan your travel to the Swan Valley

Walking around the Swan Valley or to faraway car parking can be cold in winter. But with our decadent Swan Valley Wine Tours, you can relax and unwind and keep warm on our luxury bus. 

Winter Vines, Swanbrook Winery - Swan Valley

Our wine tours allow you to spend the day sampling beautiful wines produced with local grape and fresh local produce such as cheese, sorbet, olives, nuts, chocolates, and other tasty surprises along the way. You will also enjoy a filling two-course lunch at Mandoon Estate.

Winter is coming, but never fear, you can prepare for your cold winter’s day in the Swan Valley and warm up with these tips.

"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."
