The self-guided trail includes seven wineries and breweries in the Peel region.

“You could drink a bit of this,” The West Australian’s wine writer Ray Jordan recently said of Millbrook Winery’s 2017 grenache shiraz mourvedre, naming it one of his top 100 reds for the year.

And you can try this and other Millbrook wines at the winery’s lovely cellar door — situated beneath its renowned restaurant in Jarrahdale (pictured above) — as part of the new Peel Region Craft Beer & Wine Trail.

The self-guided trail includes seven wineries and breweries in the Peel region, from King Road Brewing Co in Oldbury, inland from Rockingham, down to the Skipworth Wine Company in Yarloop.

Also included are Drakebrook Fine Wines in Waroona, Three Rivers Brewing Co in Greenfields, Peel Estate Wines in Karnup and White Lakes Brewing in Baldivis. 

“In developing this trail, the idea was to work with local businesses to narrow down the offerings and make them more accessible by creating a trail showcasing the Peel region’s best locally produced beverages,” Mandurah and Peel Tourism Organisation chief executive Karen Priest said. 

The trail brochure is part of Tourism WA’s growing selection of food and wine trails throughout the State.

It includes special offers at a number of the stops. 

You can pick up a copy at visitor centres in the Peel region and at the participating wineries and breweries. 

Meanwhile, the WA Fishing Industry Council recently announced it is looking at developing a WA seafood and wine tourism trail, likely between Mandurah and Albany. 

“It makes perfect sense given our abundance of fresh, local seafood as well as a variety of restaurants and tourism experiences for people to enjoy,” Ms Priest said.
