Us South Australians love our wine. It's a defining part of our state's culture and personality, with the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley regions home to some of the best wines ever crafted. In celebration of these prestigious beauties in a bottle, the Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend will be taking place from May 13 to 16, offering visitors the chance to meet winemakers and discover what makes the region so spectacular.
More than 20 wineries will be participating this year, with the festival reaching its 32nd iteration in 2016, having been established three decades ago. With multiple events to attend across the four-day event, there will also be plenty of live music and local cuisine to settle you into the Clare Valley region.
Of course, let's not forget that all of these "small" tastings will indeed be alcoholic, and luckily LinkSA is providing transported loops around the local area to get you to and from participating wineries. Tickets cost $30 per person per day, with multiple pick-up and drop-off points available in the region.
If you're heading to Clare Valley from Adelaide, Gawler or the Barossa Valley, you can pre-book your ticket online to get there and connect with the shuttle bus service.
If you plan on staying in the region for more than a single day, there is a variety of accomodation options available, varying from powered camping sites to deluxe cabins for you to relax in. If you have any spare time asides from indulging in great food and wine and want to burn off some calories gained over the weekend, make sure to check out some fantastic walking and riding tracks such as the Riesling Trail as well.
