The Perth Hills has a cider and wine trail, you ask? It absolutely does! And it’s a little bit of a local secret – which is exactly what makes it such an amazing day out. Aside from the stunning views of endless vineyards and orchards around every corner, the boutique wineries in this region offer a more intimate experience where you will often find the winemaker or owner pouring your tastings.
On any tour with Up Close and Local, you are guaranteed to taste some amazing wines and local produce - but this tour is about much more than that. It’s about getting to know the locals, hearing their stories and seeing first hand why each of these craft producers is so unique.
We start the day with a tasting paddle of five signature ciders at a craft cider house while enjoying views over the apple orchards; we then visit two fantastic wineries for extensive wine tastings (sampling some rare and hard-to-find varietals), explore like one of the locals with a walk through the vineyard and orchard, where you are invited to taste the most delicious seasonal fruit straight off the trees – making this a real farm to glass experience.
This is all thirsty work, so after some wine tastings, relax with a gourmet platter lunch with a selection of cheeses, meats, antipasto and some Italian specialties in a fabulous boutique winery setting - again with those amazing views!
And how do we round out the day? We head to Perth's only urban Whiskey distillery for a private behind scenes tour inside the distillery to see how it’s made – then finish with some Whiskey and Moonshine tastings, of course.

Total review count and overall rating based on Viator and Tripadvisor reviews
I have been on two tours with Up Close and Local Tours. Both times were with relatively small groups. First on the Cider, Wine, and Whisky tour and the second time it was a wine tasting tour where we visited selected wineries. I can highly recommend both of these tours. The atmosphere was friendly and informal and at the same time quite informative.
We had a great day with Shannon who was full of information and showed us to some great places that didn't disappoint. I could not recommend this company highly enough and will definitely be telling all my friends!
Thank you Paul for the wonderful day of cider, wine and whisky. You have a wealth of knowledge about this industry. We particularly enjoyed the cider tasting as we did not know there is such a variety of cider. We will definitely recommend our friends to enjoy your experience when they are in Perth.
