Enjoy the last weekend of summer in the Swan Valley at the inaugural Harvest festival. A celebration of the season’s delights, Harvest is an opportunity to go behind the scenes to experience the Valley like a local.
Join our growers and producers as they invite you to delve into their world; the passion, the process and the end product.
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. Generations of families and friends get together to harvest their bounty and roadside stalls overflow with the freshest of the fresh.
Across the weekend of February 27 and 28, venues participating in the Harvest program of 14 events will throw open their doors, vineyards and fields for an exclusive range of activities. Some of these events include:
Talijancich Tractor Trail with Mondo Nougat Sticky Delights at Talijancich Wines

Organic Grape Pickers Lunch at Harris Organic Wine and Spirits

Located just 25 minutes from the centre of Perth, the Swan Valley is best known as a wine region but is also an abundant food bowl. Many of the businesses participating in Harvest can also be found on the Swan Valley Fresh Seasonal Produce Trail, an insider's guide to where to find fruit, vegetables, honey, bread and other bounty, all year-round.
