Bickley Valley Wine Tours
The Perth Hills region is fast becoming that ‘go-to’ place for Perth locals and tourists alike. And why wouldn’t it be?! Let us start with the landscape – rolling hills and winding roads that wrap around our beautiful native flora, delicious looking fruit orchards and grape vines as far as the eye can see.
Whether it’s nature treks you’re after, hitting up the glorious markets with family or enjoying premium wine and cuisine, there’s something for everyone.
When it comes to all of these activities – we have the premium wine and cuisine part down pat!!
The Perth Hills Wine Region is one of the youngest in Western Australia – Compared with our historic Swan Valley, which made its debut in wine making in the early 1830’s, this Perth Hills region was first published as an official ‘wine-growing region’ in the April of 1999.
The region we visit – Bickley Valley and also Carmel Valley – is situated along the Darling Scarp, which rises roughly 400m above the coastal plains east of Perth. The Scarp itself has a major influence on the climate of this wine region. It helps to moderate daylight hours, shields the vineyards from maritime influences, increases Winter rainfall and provides many topographical aspects to the region. The region still gets warm dry summers allowing for the grapes to reach full ripeness before harvest time commencing middle of February each year.
Due to it’s unique climate the wine-makers can grow a diverse range of vines that you won’t usually find all together in the Swan Valley Wine Region or the Margaret River Wine Region.
