Upper Reach Winery, chosen by Gourmet Traveller as the Star Swan Valley cellar door, is holding a series of four intimate Twilight Concert performances on its beautiful grounds overlooking the vines.

The Twilight Concerts have become a regular hit at Upper Reach each year with concert-goers eager to either enjoy the relaxed atmosphere with their own picnic on the lawn or the stylish elegant dining at Broad’s Restaurant @ Upper Reach enjoying the concerts from above.

Helping to celebrate the 2014 harvest, The Oz Big Band will open the season in style on Saturday February 1. The Oz Big Band is an amazing 20-piece band with a blend of jazz and swing that shows why you can’t beat the sound of a BIG band.

Adam Hall & the Velvet Playboys are now in demand internationally, but they started playing at Upper Reach several years ago. They make a welcome return to serenade concert-goers with the music of Duke Ellington, Sinatra and swing.

It will be a feast for eyes and ears on Saturday February 15, a perfect funky valentine celebration, especially with an imaginative set menu from Anthony Broad in Broad’s Restaurant.

The third concert is on Saturday March 1 with Stratosfunk, a high-energy soul band performing hits from the Motown era.

The final concert is Perth’s best Jazz Divas on Saturday March 15.

Sue Black, Masina Miller and Denise Dale will play the great standards from Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone to Carol King.

This wonderful music will be the perfect accompaniment to sip Upper Reach’s medal- winning wines, enjoying a long, lazy summer evening, watching the sun set over the vines.

It is the 11th anniversary of these intimate concerts.

Treat your partner to a really special evening and dine in the refurbished Broad’s Restaurant @ Upper Reach. Anthony Broad has designed a special three-course set menu for the Twilight Concerts.

At the Cellar Door you’ll meet the people who actually grow the grapes and make the wine and who can provide an insight into this summer’s vintage and harvest.

Upper Reach is the perfect place to relax over a Chef’s Plate and glass of wine.
