Some of the world’s best wineries
When looking for wineries in the Clare Valley, head to the towns of Clare, Sevenhill, Watervale, Mintaro, Auburn and Polish Hill River. The slopes, ridges and plains create distinct soil types and micro-climates in each region.
Clare Valley is superb. Sit back, relax and treat your senses.
Best of the best
Five-star rated wineries are scattered throughout the Clare Valley and its signature wine, Riesling, is among the world’s best. There are more than 30 wineries to see and the views from many of them are breathtaking.
Annie’s Lane at Quelltaler and Grosset Wines sit on a crowded winery “top shelf”. Reilly’s Wines, Clos Clare and Kilikanoon Wines are among some of the stunning boutique producers.
The Clare Valley’s pioneering heritage remains strong and the very first of Australia’s gourmet weekends was held in the Clare Valley in 1984. Today, thousands of people flock to Clare each May to celebrate the end of vintage at the Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend.
Like the wineries, there is food to please every palate. From country style pub meals to contemporary fine dining, there’s wine to match your food, and food to match your mood! Taste the real Clare Valley by sampling locally-produced olive oils, preserves, pickles and cured meats.
