Welcome to CANNY GRAPES - a Perth based wine education and consulting business

The philosophy behind CANNY GRAPES is to explore the world of wine. Study, learn and experience wine in all its styles, colours and tastes. Travel wine regions, meet the incredibly talented winemakers and their team, get to know terroir, the vineyards and how wine is made. Luckily there are wine professionals and wine specialists around the world who share their experiences with us, who write books, publish magazines, taste and judge wines, encouraging us wine lovers to keep venturing. 

CANNY GRAPES is about sharing and expanding wine knowledge, inviting you to journey through vineyards, wine regions, grape varieties, wine  history and learn interesting facts about wine - all together a fun and educational wine tasting experience. 

Sharing wine knowledge and experiences also includes collaborating and consulting, working with licensed venues, restaurants, bars creating customised wine lists representing the current local and international market. 

Every great bottle of wine tells a story of it’s origin.

Just as listening is different to hearing, tasting is different to drinking.

I have teamed up with Maylands favourite neighbourhood bar Swallow Bar and Spanish Tapas Bar Duende in Leederville, who are both passionate wine lovers themselves. CANNY GRAPES is hosting monthly Wine Tasting Classes in both venues which are complimented by delicious small food plates, matching the wines we taste. 

For those who love to take home their favourite wine after the class I now host a monthly wine tasting class every third Thursday at Cellarbrations Subiaco collaborating with a number of amazing small businesses.

Hi Anja, I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing Sparkling wine class hosted on Saturday afternoon. My mum, sister and I had a great time. Your passion for what you do is inspiring, and we hope to attend another event of yours soon. With thanks
— Pip Foster
Anja’s classes are very informative, well researched and presented in a friendly, fun and highly engaging manner. If you enjoy tasting new and interesting wines with old and new friends this is a fantastic way to share and learn. Anja also offers great tips as to sourcing less well known wines which you are bound to want to try again!

Travelling Corkscrew

I had a special guest at one of my very popular Sparkling Tasting Classes. Casey who shares her experiences in the world of wine via her wine blog Travelling Corkscrew joined my class and we travelled together through Italy, Spain, France and of course Australia. Check out what she wrote about Canny Grapes Wine Tasting Classes here.

In October Casey attended one of my wine dinners I hosted at Itsara which she shared on her blog.
