About
Upper Reach is a family owned and operated boutique winery, on the banks of Perth's Swan River. We'd love you to come for a wine tasting at our crisp, clean Cellar Door with huge views of the vineyard. You could be anywhere, but you're only 30 minutes drive from Perth! The only accommodation on a vineyard in the Swan Valley is the Upper Reach Spa Cottage, this historic two bedroom cottage has been fully restored for you to enjoy 'owing a vineyard' for the night- there is just one cottage so your privacy is assured! Our aim at Upper Reach is to produce wine of the highest quality from estate grown fruit, each wine reflecting both the vineyard and the particular vintage.Upper Reach is one of the top Swan Valley wine producers, with an extensive list of wine show awards. We believe that wine is one of life's essentials along with good food, family and friends. Come in for wine tasting in a relaxed, inviting setting every day of the week, 11am until 5pm.

Nice cottage for a Swan Valley getaway
Jun 2021
We stayed overnight in the cottage which was very comfortable and well appointed. We were two couples accommodated in two large bedrooms with Queen beds. We called in at the cellar door first and did a bit of wine tasting and then enjoyed the afternoon sun on the back deck of the cottage overlooking the vineyards. The cottage has a full kitchen with oven and microwave but we had been out for lunch so just brought grazing food for dinner. Everything you need is supplied, there is no coffee machine but there is a plunger. My only (very small) gripe is that we didn't have enough firewood for a winter's night. They set up the fire for us and then there were only two small pieces of wood and two large pieces, which was all gone before 9pm, I think a couple more large pieces would have been perfect. There is a reverse cycle heater/aircon which does warm the room up nicely but the fire is a much nicer option for heating. I definitely recommend this place for a Swan Valley getaway, we loved it.

A relaxed, enjoyable and informative wine appreciation course
May 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our morning doing the Wine 101 course with friends of ours. Stephen was a wonderful guide. He has great knowledge and was very informative, but was also relaxed and easy going, with a fun sense of humour. We enjoyed the tasting experience very much, and feel that the course helped deepen our understanding and appreciation of wine and how to pair it with food. Upper Reach have some great wines! We went on to enjoy a delicious lunch in the Upper reach restaurant, topped off with a terrific Tempranillo (highly recommend this!). A relaxed wander down to the Swan River and through the vineyards was a great way to end a delightful experience. Thanks to the warm and welcoming team in the wine tasting particularly. We will certainly be back!

Wine 101
Apr 2021 • Couples
We really enjoyed our morning, taking part in the Wine Education 101 class, after a breakfast at the restaurant for a family group of 6. None of us are 'wine experts', apart from knowing what we like and what we don't, so Steven's approach of starting with some ordinary everyday tastes before moving onto wines themselves helped us feel comfortable with our lack of expertise. Then, as we moved on to the basics of tasting beyond 'sniff/swirl/sip', the small techniques as well as the prepared 'handouts' of a 'tasting wheel' to help identify flavours and a page for our own notes were really helpful, too. A really good morning, definitely 'value for money', no condescending 'wine conneisur' talk and some extra knowledge to take away with me. I must pay more attention to what I'm actually tasting now!
Oh - and Upper Reach's wines are well worth tasting, too. Alan

Underwhelming
Mar 2021
We attended as a group of 8 persons and although the wine offering was nice, the food was disappointing. The wait staff were very young and appeared inexperienced so that is something the management need to look at. Some of our group rated their meal well but the majority of opinion was that it was underwhelming. With so many meal / drink options in the Swan Valley I doubt whether I will return here.

Fascinating
Feb 2021
We had a wonderful time being shown the whole wine making process. I thought I knew a bit about this, but boy did I learn a whole lot more. Laura is a delightful host and as an owner was able to really supply some detail. Highly recommended.

Shame I have to share this wonderful place and their wine!
Feb 2021
Upper Reach never disappoint. Did the winery/vineyard tour for the first time, I've visited UR numerous times over the years. The tour was very informative, love Laura's passion. Brought home some new knowledge about wine making. Followed up with a 2 course lunch at Riverbook, again another place that never disappoints. Upper Reach have great wine, great location, great food (Riverbrook) and great owners!! Keep up the great work!!

Fun and informative
Jan 2021
A fun and informative class! The guide was wonderful and engaging, and the experience was very relaxed while still learning a lot. Lots of tips and methods for tasting wine that will be helpful and easy to apply in everyday life. Really learned what we like in wine which will make it easier to buy well in the future!
