Details

Up Close and Local Tours offer highly personalised, boutique food and wine tours in Perth for both local food and wine-lovers, and travellers looking for an authentic wine tour experience. Get VIP treatment as Up Close and Local make it easy to uncover some of the hidden gems that visitors (and even some fellow locals) would never otherwise find.

All tours are fully guided by one of their passionate and knowledgeable wine guides, who have an internationally recognised (WSET) accreditation in wine education, and know the Swan Valley and Bickley Valley inside out! With a business ethos of supporting local, they work together with the producers and winemakers to ensure that every guest gets the best possible experience each and every day - often this means access to experiences that are not available to the general public.

The Swan Valley is WA's oldest wine region and has some spectacular wines on offer, and for those who are a little more adventurous, Up Close and Local also offer tours to the beautiful Bickley Valley wine region as well as one day and multi-day private tours (by appointment) to the famous Margaret River wine region.

With so many regions, and so many cellar doors, a little local knowledge goes a long way!
