The first vines were planted in the Clare Valley in 1851. Today there are more than 40 cellar doors throughout the valley, with a strong focus on Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Several wineries are now also operating small breweries with ales, stouts and pilsners added to the mix.The towns and wineries are spaced closely together making it easy to explore the area. Hop on a bike and cycle the aptly named Riesling Trail to visit some of the cellar doors along the route. The 35km trail runs between the townships of Clare and Auburn.
Clare Valley’s chefs and cooks are fast developing the region’s cuisine and have a wealth of gourmet foods to draw from. From olive oil to saltbush lamb, Clare Valley produce is not just about fancy labels. Take the opportunity taste the best locally grown produce served in beautiful historic buildings or fresh from the grower at markets.
Find the magic, and a little romance, in the Clare Valley.
