Wine And Food in Perth
'A Jug of Wine, A Loaf of Bread - and Thou' goes the famous line from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. While this might be enough for some, it won't be adequate for most people once they've savoured the excellent wines and local produce of WA.
WA is chock-full of award winning wineries, winery restaurants, breweries, microbreweries, distilleries, specialty food stores, bakeries and patisseries and more. All these can be found not only in Perth and its Surrounds, but also in the other regions of WA, most notably the world renowned Margaret River area in the South West. Another area worth visiting is the idyllic Swan Valley which is located a mere 25 minutes east of Perth city.You'll be amazed by the range of local produce available - from aromatic truffles to marron (a WA crayfish), venison to rock lobster. WA also produces excellent meat, fruits, vegetables, herbs, cheeses, olives plus other local produce - too numerous to mention individually.If you prefer to be driven around while you go wine tasting, check out these Eating and Drinking Tours which are are conducted by experts who'll provide you with lots of information about the local wine and food industry.
