Clare Valley

With more than 40 wineries and vineyards, plus numerous galleries and museums, there's plenty to see. Discover the fantastic restaurants, food and produce markets as well as major sports events. Some of the wineries date back as far as the 1850s when Jesuit priests planted the first vines and today the region is known as "the heart of Australian Riesling" – so much so that the Riesling Trail is a cycling route through vineyards.
