Planning a trip

The picturesque Clare Valley's winemaking history spans more than 150 years, making it one of Australia's oldest wine-producing regions. It has also been described as one of the prettiest in Australia with rolling hills and sweeping gullies. The unique combination of geography, geology and climate results in terroir that is perfect for producing world-class wine.

Only a 90 minute drive from Adelaide, finding your way to the Clare Valley couldn't be easier. But as we've heard from visitors so many times before, leaving can often prove difficult. It is a charming corner of South Australia an around every corner it seems, is another lovely vista. There are countless markets, delightful restaurants and quaint little pubs to explore - and of course, more than 40 wineries boasting some of Australia's finest wines.

Finding a place to stay

From B&Bs to luxury apartments, you'll find plenty of options in the region. Visit South Australia Tourism and Clare Valley Business and Tourism Association for more.

Tasting the local produce

We recommend a visit to the Clare Valley Food, Wine & Art market, held on the first Sunday of the month as a great place to taste the best produce from the Clare.

The Riesling Trail

The popular trail takes in stunning countryside and gorgeous little villages, before finishing in Auburn, our home, where you can enjoy our award winning Riesling.


In the vineyard


This time of the year is known as 'Budburst'. It's when our vines wake from winter dormancy to begin a new growing season.

October/Early November

Over these months the vines flower, producing a beautiful smell across the vineyard and then produce tiny bunches. By late October to early November, the fruit sets.

Late November/December

At this stage, our developing grapes look like small green peas. It's difficult to imagine that these hard green berries will be turned into wine come the new year.

In the vineyard


This period of time is known as 'veraison' - where the ripening berries become soft and fleshy, and begin to turn their purple, red and golden colours.

February - May

Harvest, or vintage, starts in February and continues to around May - however, this can change dramatically depending on the weather conditions.

June - September

With the grapes harvested and the weather turning cold, the vines slowly return to their dormant state. Hand-pruning continues.
