You don’t have to feel bad drinking at home alone any more thanks to Hidden DeTours’ Perth Virtual Tours
We heard it first from Director of Merriment, Monique Boucher – the woman who brought Perth it’s first Gin distillery tours.
She’s named the series of virtual tours ISOLATION LIBATION TOURS, and we are here for it!
Wine tours are on hold due to social distancing and liquor regulations at the moment and our wine producers are doing it tough.
Many wineries and producers are still trading with a drive through set up, or selling online – but tastings are on hold until we get through the Rona.
That doesn’t have to stop you from exploring Perth’s gorgeous Bickley Valley from the comfort of your couch.
We’ve never purchased and drank so much booze at home…
ISO-wines are being virtually clinked via Zoom, Facetime, WhatsApp etc daily as we fuel our need for connection. And wine.
That’s where this idea is so genius in it’s simplicity.
You can enjoy a free Facebook live tour every Saturday afternoon featuring awesome craft producers in Perth making delicious wine, gin, beer, cider and more.
The first Hidden DeTours tour will be this Saturday (25 April) at a hidden gem located in the Perth Hills – the beautiful Bickley Valley Wine and Cider Trail.
How does it work?
All you have to do is tune in!
Visiting 7 wineries over 3.5 hours Monique Boucher will take you on a one of a kind tour experience behind the scenes, chatting with winemakers and owners about their winery and wines.
Each winery showcase is around 20 minutes and will feature 2 fabulous wines in detail and an exploration of the vineyard, winery or cellar door.
If you would like to sip on a tasty Bickley Valley wine, contact the winery directly to arrange for delivery prior to Saturday 25 April or uncover a new favourite during the tour and get your orders in!
