What is it?

Professional Misconduct Events and Oakover Grounds invite you to jump onboard one of our chartered buses for an exclusive day of outstanding local beer, wine, food and music in the heart of the beautiful Swan Valley! The Valley of TASTE!

So… what is ‘Throwing of the Grape’?

The sixth annual ‘Throwing of the Grape’ is a boutique food, wine and music festival to celebrate the first wine harvest at Oakover Grounds for 2016!

You’ve heard of ‘La Tomatina’ in Spain where the streets are filled with over-ripened tomatoes… well this is the unique Western Australian version (with grapes)!
We’re talking wine tasting, great local food selections, grape stomping, live music, silent disco’s, rides and amusements, DJs and of course GRAPE THROWING!

The infamous ‘Grape Throwing’ is only one part of a big day and will take place in a dedicated fenced-off area, so it’s up to you if you’d like to join in – you won’t get grapes thrown on you if you don’t want to!

You can choose the option of having bus transport included with your ticket or you can buy an ‘entry only’ ticket and make your own way to Oakover Winery.
We hope you can join us for Summer in the Valley for a great West Australian tradition! Without doubt the most fun that you’ll have at an event this year!

What to Wear

There’s no dress code and we want you to be comfortable, so dress to match the weather and don’t forget a hat and sunglasses. February in Perth in always pretty warm! Lots of groups choose to come dressed in a theme or fancy dress – so get creative, and keep an eye out for our photographers!

 If you plan on taking part in the ‘Grape Throw’, we recommend you wear board-shorts or bathers so you can have a quick rinse in the ‘Grape Cleaning’ showers once the throwing is over. Then head out into the sun to dry off and enjoy the rest of the afternoon.

Feel free to bring a picnic blanket if you want to set up a spot on the lawn for your group!

Cloak Room Facilities are available!
