Swan Valley, Western Australia: Food and Wine Trail

This is how we recently celebrated a friend’s birthday; we drove to Swan Valley (around 30mins from Perth CBD), a famous wine and food destination in WA. It is, in fact, the oldest wine growing region in Western Australia. We sampled free chocolates, tasted different varieties of wine, munched on cheese, and sipped several coffee brews. It was a DIY food and wine trail and the best part is that everything was free! (except for the Chenin Blanc that we couldn’t get enough of so we bought a bottle.)
