At a time when it has never been more important to shop locally and support local businesses, Entwined in the Valley 2020 returns for a three-day showcase of the Swan Valley’s unique offerings.
This year’s program of dynamic and delicious boutique events will kick off on Friday October 9 with the inaugural Swan Valley Winemakers Association Quiz Night. Across the weekend of October 10 and 11 more than 25 venues and producers will open
their cellar doors, restaurants and grounds to offer activities and experiences not available every day.
With spring in the air, visitors will be encouraged to taste, try and do something new. From bottomless brunches and long relaxed lunches to family fun and exclusive tastings, there’s something for all ages and budgets. New events include:
- An afternoon of Beers, Beats and Bites at Mash Brewing
- A cider-making masterclass at Funk Cider
- An afternoon of Bush Tucker, Sweet Treats and Native Teas with Dale Tilbrook at Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery
Returning events include the Swan Valley Sisters Family Market Day, Sittella’s Sparkling Brunch and Make Your Own Nougat classes with Mondo Nougat.
Although the Swan Valley is Western Australia’s oldest wine region, it also has a growing reputation for making beer, cider and award-winning spirits. Entwined in the Valley this year boasts multiple chances to sample the spirit of the moment, gin:
- Harris Organic will present Organic Distilling in Action, with the chance to learn about organic vodka, gin and brandy
- The multi-awarded Old Young’s Distillery will host a Cheese and Gin Extravaganza
- The roaring 20s lands at Pandemonium Estate for the Swan Valley Gin Co’s Swan Valley Speakeasy
City of Swan Mayor Kevin Bailey said Entwined in the Valley provided a great opportunity for Swan Valley businesses to reconnect the Perth community with the wonderful produce and activities available in their own backyard.
“This year’s Entwined in the Valley program is a feast for the senses, with so many opportunities to enjoy delicious food, beverages and homegrown experiences you don’t get every weekend,” he said. “Spring is the ideal time to explore the Swan Valley while supporting our local producers and artisans.
“You can even make a weekend of it by booking a stay at one of the Swan Valley’s many accommodation offerings, especially if you’re coming from out of town.”
Located just 25 minutes from the centre of Perth, the Swan Valley is home to an abundance of talented chefs, winemakers, brewers and purveyors of fresh produce and artisan goods looking forward to helping you get entwined in all that the region has to offer.
