Mintaro, Clare Valley

It’s one of our most picturesque wine growing regions, the spectacular Clare Valley. Tucked away amid the rows of vines are little hidden gems – like the historic town of Mintaro, a treasure trove of blue stone and local slate.

There’s been a lot happening in this small town of late – a mini Renaissance if you will, making it the perfect place to visit to enjoy its unique blend of heritage and wine.

The legendary Magpie Stump pub has recently undergone a total revamp. Originally built as a watering hole for bullockies transporting copper from Burra to Port Wakefield, the Magpie Stump’s wood-fired oven is now ready to feed those heading to the valley for a well-earned break – and a crisp Riesling or red of course.

With recent renovations to a classic pub, a stylish art gallery and a selection of beautiful heritage B&B’s, things are certainly looking up for a town with a unique look.

So why not share in Mintaro’s recent renaissance, with a weekend end away in the gorgeous Clare Valley. Riesling Studios can cater for your every need, for all the details head to their website.
