‘Partners Bree Lavell and Paul Hoffman Welcome you to Swan Valley Wines. A herbalist and botanist team with a love for nature’
Welcome to Swan Valley Wines – one of Western Australia’s historic viticultural treasures, managed by the Hoffman family since 1989. Paul Hoffman (Winemaker), has studied in diverse fields, including ecology, botany and viticulture / oenology, and is interested in the integration of agricultural and natural systems. All our wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts and do not contain enzymes or other chemical additions, and several of the wines are made without additions of any kind, including sulfites (SO2).
We are passionate about maintaining the biocultural diversity of the valley, showcasing several wines made from chenin blanc and grenache, which we believe are the region’s greatest varieties.
The estate vineyard is one of the oldest in the State, its gnarled old vines dry-grown and carefully tended by hand to produce tiny yields of intensely flavoured fruit. We also purchase some alternative varieties from like-minded growers including: greco bianco, malvasia, aleatico, tannat, mourvedré and tempranillo, some of which are poured in Perth’s best wine bars.
Free wine tasting is offered for groups of up to nine people. Groups of ten or more pay $10 a head and receive a complimentary tasting platter.
The cellar door also sells seasonal produce, including figs, mulberries and olives
