The Swan Valley is located 25 minutes north of Perth, Western Australia and is home to some of the oldest vineyards in Australia with the first commercial vintage being released in 1834 by Thomas Waters. The unique warm Mediterranean climate and nutrient rich, diverse soils coupled with alluvial plains has played a perfect host to a wide-range of plantings, including Verdelho, Shiraz, Grenache, Chardonnay and, of course, Chenin Blanc.
