THE SWAN Valley pulled out all the stops for last week’s Entwined in the Valley, attracting thousands of people from all over WA to the region.

The reimagined festival focused on meet the maker and the generational families that made the wineries and restaurants of the Swan Valley so special.

City of Swan tourism and marketing officer Sascha Stone said the event was hugely successful, with final numbers still being counted.

“The whole vibe of this year’s event was all about family,” she said.

“People were amazed going to the events and venues and meeting third generation wine makers.

“The festival had a huge program this year and really focused on what the Swan Valley is about.”

She said partnering with the Guildford Jazz Festival, Fervor and the Vintage Sports Car Club added to the success of the festival.

“This year’s highlights were the Secret Supper, the Fervor event at Lilac Hill Park which was amazing, the opening jazz event at Guildford Grammar and the Alchemy and the Magic of Charcoal, which sold out, with 200 guests,” she said.

“There were a lot of high achieving events.”

Ms Stone said next year’s event would be back bigger and better next year.

“Entwined the reimagined format has outdone all previous Entwined events and has gained momentum in the hearts of mind of Perth event goers and we look forward to putting together another amazing festival next year,” she said.
