Guide to the Clare Valley
One of the major wine regions in South Australia, the Clare Valley is best known for its world-class riesling.
A fertile wine region two hours north of Adelaide, the Clare Valley is home to some of the most awarded wineries in the country. It’s also one of Australia's oldest wine-producing areas, dating back to the 1850s. Vineyards around the towns of Clare, Sevenhill, Watervale, Mintaro, Auburn and Polish Hill River produce excellent riesling alongside well-regarded vintages of other varietals. With farm-gate stores, providores and restaurants offering incredible food, your choice of luxury accommodation, scenic cycling and walking trails and a rich history to explore, a stay in the Clare Valley is a treat for all the senses.
