The Swan Valley is 30km north of Perth city centre and we specialise in Swan Valley Wine and West Australian Wine.

the Swan Valley produces Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and Verdelho. Organic red wines are Shiraz and Malbec. The cellar door is on the corner of Memorial Avenue and the Great Northern Highway. See our on-line organic wine shop for your convenience.

Duncan's ancestors were an entrepreneurial lot, with one Francois Girard, owning the Sydney Hotel and another, Michael Hayes, operating one of the first illegal distilleries in Australia. The first sparkling wine that was made on the premises in 2009 is named "Madeleine Claire" after their daughter - this Blanc de Blanc is a vegan friendly vintage sparkling Chardonnay. Duncan built the low energy underground cellar in 2001 – a much greener method (than that of artificial temperature control).

The Swan Valley Winery cellar door was built in 1933 from second hand sheet corrugated iron and West Australian Jarrah timbers. The area is the oldest wine region in West Australia and one of the hottest grape growing regions in the world, perfect for Organic Wines. The region is very convenient for visitors to Perth – ideal for a day-trip as there are many attractions.

Everything is done by hand; from pruning to most importantly, the hand picking of the fruit in late summer; this means there are no machine battered vines or organic wines here – you could say that we are happy producers of “free range" wines. Our wines are suitable for vegetarians, vegans and low sodium diets. Our dry red Shiraz and organic Wines and preservative free dessert wines are unfined and unfiltered.

The natural certified organic wines are fashioned by hand - from the first budburst of Spring to the final pruning in grey winter, the certified organic vineyard (where beautiful wine begins) is carefully tended by Duncan. Because the vineyard is managed using sustainable principles of viticulture, no pesticides or herbicidal chemicals are used on or around the vines, nor are the vines artificially fertilised. The vines are strip dug with a "silly plough" each spring to turn over the nitrogen-rich winter growth a hard job with Duncan on the sweaty end. Every month, we create a newsletter. Here you will find online wine shop promotions, discounts, invitations to festivals, organic news, and other useful information.

This year the swan valley is celebrating 180 years of winemaking, that means the swan valley is the second oldest winemaking region in Australia and one of the worlds best. With modern machinery and practices the winemaking and wines are world class.

Duncan and Deborah Harris tend the vines and sell only at the Swan Valley Wineries cellar door and through the on-line organic wine shop.

Duncan began making wine in 1994, making unfortified preservative free dessert wines. In 1998 he purchased the Swan Valley property, starting from "scratch", the first Shiraz vines were planted in 1999. In early 2001, Duncan fortuitously became a full-time vigneron. It was also the year that he became a father to Madeleine Claire, born in November. A very good year! In his fifteen plus years of viticulture, peer reviews of his West Australian wines have been positive, with high ratings by writers, judges and many happy bottle lovers. The Handbook of Horticulture and Viticulture of West Australia. In 1921 "The Handbook of Horticulture and Viticulture of West Australia" was published by the WA Department of Agriculture. Written by a Adrien d'Espeissis, a good man who had not only great practical intent in compiling the handbook, but also empathy and commitment to the endeavours of the collective populace of his adopted home; the state of West Australia. Duncan Harris is only one of many agriculturalist or viticulturalist who has been inspired and instructed by "The Handbook" extensively over the years (since starting his venture into viticulture and winemaking). It was because his own 1921 version was falling apart that Duncan decided to undertake the daunting and time-consuming task of re-printing this wonderful book on behalf of others (as well as for himself!). The first 25 pages of the 3rd Edition and last (including the contents page) of the 633 pages plus index plus photographs (689 pages in total).
