Entwined in the Valley Returns to the Swan Valley on 07-09 October 2022

Entwined in the Valley

The Swan Valley is one of Perth’s favourite destinations for a long lunch but for one weekend this spring, select businesses will come alive at night for the return of Entwined in the Valley.

The bumper program of new and returning favourites offers visitors the opportunity to sip,. sample, wine and dine at several venues that don’t ordinarily open after dark, or only for functions and special events.

Not a night owl? From brunches and long lunches to hands-on masterclasses and market days, there are plenty of daytime activities to ignite the senses and tempt the taste buds.

City of Swan Mayor David Lucas said it was great to see so many new venues taking part in Entwined in the Valley.

“The Swan Valley is WA’s oldest wine region and the second oldest in Australia but it is also home to many acclaimed breweries and distilleries,” Mayor Lucas said.

“It’s great to see Old Young’s Kitchen, the recently opened Limeburners and Giniversity in the Valley, and new brewery Valley Social, as well as the stunning Estate at Chapel Farm, in the event program alongside stalwarts such as Sittella Winery, Garbin Estate Wines, Swan Valley Sisters and The House of Honey.

“We also have a diverse program of supporting events this year, including market days, a Croatian food experience at Holy Mary Cellars and the return of Vivaldi in the Vines at Faber Vineyard.”

Entwined in the Valley again once coincides with the end of the October school holidays, making it the perfect time to visit with the family.
