Celebrate the last weekend of summer in the Swan Valley at the inaugural Harvest festival on February 27 and 28, 2021.
Inspired by the success of Entwined in the Valley, which takes place in October around the release of the new wine vintage, Harvest takes place during the busy picking season.
This is an exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes to experience the Valley like a local!
The jam-packed program will see celebrated vineyards and fields across the Valley open their doors to the public and offer a range of fabulous activities, including the chance to join a grape pickers lunch; try your hand at making pasta, nougat, nut-based confectionery or chutney; explore the versatility of table and wine grapes; and stock up on amazing summer fruit and vegetables, honey, bread and more while immersing the rustic atmosphere of the roadside stalls.
Come along with your family and friends and join growers and producers as they get together to harvest their bounty. Check out some of the highlights below and click on the links to secure your tickets!
