That sounds like a lovely day! I will pass your compliments on to the restaurant owners and chef. You are right, summer is stunning with the restaurant deck overlooking the vineyard...best place to be on a nice sunny day. (with a glass of wine , good food and a few friends!)
We look forward to your return visit to the winery with a few friends in summer!
Went for lunch on a Monday to catch up with friends. It is an excellent place to eat and also taste some wines. Food excellent, service great. Will be back
Thank you so much for taking the time to tell people of your time here at Upper Reach Winery. We will look forward to your return visit and more wine tasting at cellar door...maybe a spring visit is in order?!
See you again soon!
This is a beautiful location for a catch up. We started with the wine tasting, with the expertise of Steve. Some great wines available all made from grapes grown on the property. I loved the Reserve Shiraz.
It was packed on the Sunday we were there (you must book). We were a table of four, with two sharing the Tex Mex platter, other dishes were the pork belly and lamb shank. My lamb shank was packed full off flavour. Everyone enjoyed their selections. We chose the unwooded Chardonnay to accompany all the dishes.
Service was generally good, only downside was we waited a long time for water to be brought to our table. It appeared they forgot us as they served all the other tables water. Easily solved by heading to the bar and requesting a bottle (couldn't get their attention at the table). The service improved after that!
I recommend lunch here as it's a beautiful location, great cellar door, delicious food, easy parking and no tour buses!
Thank you for your review! It was my pleasure showing you our range of wines...I have to agree with you, the shiraz is a terrific drop. (we do shiraz really well here not only in the Swan valley but this winery)
Sorry we forgot to provide water at your table, we did not mean to neglect you...Im glad we were able to sort it out quickly for you...Weekends are very busy in the swan valley, I recommend a midweek visit and you almost get the venue to yourselves...perfect for a long lazy lunch with friends!
We look forward to your return visit, and hope you bring a few friends to introduce them to our little gem in the Svan Valley.
Received a voucher for lunch and a winery tour at Upper Reach Winery for Christmas, had a free Sunday so booked in for a tour and lunch. Started with lunch and as we had a long drive home, and wine tasting to follow, stuck to cloud juice with our meal. Husband and I shared an Indian platter, very tasty, great portion sizes and nice variety of dishes. Followed the platter with rhubarb crumble with ice cream that was so delicious, and such a large portion that I couldn't finish it.
Tasted the port and liquor muscat at the cellar door while waiting for the wine tour to start - both very nice! Lovely small group of six for the tour of the winery, which is family owned and run. Laura was an excellent host who gave us just enough information without getting overly technical. The wine tasting was very pleasant although as the designated driver I only inhaled.
Thoroughly enjoyable way to spend an afternoon, hope to get back soon to stay in the old cottage so that we both can fully appreciate tasting all the wines available.
Thank you for the amazing review! We could not be more proud of our vineyard and winery....it has certainly undergone a transformation in the 21 years of owning the property. It is always a treat so show guests around.
I still have dreams about the apple and rhubarb crumble.... so yummy! Im glad you got to enjoy it.
I would recommend a stay at our spa cottage after a long lazy lunch next time you visit, no need to worry about who is driving- so you can enjoy that extra glass of wine at lunch!
See you again soon!
We shared a Mediterranean platter and we're just so pleased with our choice! We also enjoyed our wine tasting with Steve. A beautiful environment and wonderful meal with fabulous staff. Totally recommend!!!
Wine tasting was something we planned to do during our trip to Australia. After researching many different vineyard tours in both Perth and Sydney, we decided to book the tour and wine tasting at Upper Reach and we were not disappointed!!
Laura is a fantastic, friendly host and as well as being very knowledgeable, made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived! The tour of the vineyard and winery was really interesting and the wine tasting fantastic - Laura asked us about the sort of wines we liked and tailored the tasting to this but also encouraged us to try something new!
I would definitely recommend Upper Reach if you are visiting Perth and want to do wine tasting - the tour & tasting lasts an hour but this is not rushed and Laura was happy to answer all of our questions along the way. I would also recommend staying for lunch & a glass of wine at the restaurant on site.
Thank you Laura for such a great experience - one of the highlights of our trip to Australia!
So thrilled we were one of your trip highlights to Australia! Thank you so much for coming...We hope we are now "your winery" that you visit when you are in Australia.
A visit in summer perhaps next time? the vineyard will be laden with fruit and leaves, and eating on the restaurant deck overlooking the vines is a treat on a sunny day.
I hope you took lots of photos of your time here to remember your day
