Now here’s something fun to do a Friday night and skip the weekend crowds. Twilight Tastings in the Swan Valley. Let’s face it, sipping wine in summer as the sun is setting is far nicer than tasting wine at 10am, wouldn’t you agree?
Twilight Tastings is a new initiative by a select group of Swan Valley cellar doors, designed to encourage people to pop through for a relaxing wine on a Friday afternoon on the way home. Make the Swan Valley your ‘Knock Off, Stop Off’ during December – not only are you supporting local small businesses, but the Swan Valley is WA’s oldest wine region and just 30 minutes from the CBD. I love this initiative – a great way to kick start your weekend!
Held over four Friday evenings in December 1, 8, 15 and 22, each winery has a tailored tasting experience and an exclusive offer. Check them out below:
