The Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend is celebrating its 35th year. With an incredible range of events including masterclasses, degustation dinners, and wine tastings, it truly is an epic three days — and one of South Australia’s most popular and fun happenings.
Since starting out with just 12 venues in 1985, executive officer Tania Matz has put Clare and its incredible winemakers and producers on the map. She really has a lot to be proud of!
With over 37 places throwing open their doors – it’s hard to know where to start! But Grosset Wines is definitely worth a visit. This is one of the most iconic wineries in the valley – and if you’re lucky, you’ll find legendary winemaker Jeff Grosset giving a tasting.
Pikes Wines is another great pick, as they really know how to throw a party with great music, great food and wine. What more could you ask for?
Because accommodation always books out, a great idea is to take your home with you, so Apollo kindly lent our team one of their newest caravans, called the Coromal PEX. Built tough for off-roading, you can take this beauty almost anywhere.
The Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend is held every year in May, attracting thousands of visitors to the region. But Clare is a wonderful place to visit anytime – especially during the cooler months. To plan your gourmet escape, a visit to the Clare Valley Wine, Food and Tourism Centre is a must. Just pop in and have a chat to one of their helpful staff or visit their website for more ideas.
