The beautiful Clare Valley is an easy one and a half hour drive north of Adelaide, and is well worth the short journey. Affectionately known to locals and visitors alike as the “Gateway to the Outback” and the “Garden of the North”, the region is a lovely patch of green with old gum trees and majestic vineyards on the way to or from South Australia’s outback.
It might be renowned worldwide for its crisp Rieslings, but thanks to its modulating microclimate of long hot summer days and cool evenings it also creates delightfully elegant and flavoursome Shiraz and Cabernet.
We love Clare Valley for its wonderful sense of community and the local characters. We encourage you to come to visit and discover what it has to offer for yourself. Indulge your senses in our food and wine haven. There are more than 30 wineries that are all within an easy reach of each other, most of which are quant and family-owned. If you want to take a bit longer, stay at a homely B&B, dine at one of the pubs in town and meander through the local farmer’s markets. There is also an abundance of family-friendly attractions to explore. You’ll soon start to feel like a local.
