Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend 2012
The Clare Valley is one of Australia’s premier wine regions, renowned for producing world class wines, particularly Riesling.
Nestled in the Mt Lofty ranges of South Australia, the region is only a 90 minute drive north of Adelaide. The valley stretches from Auburn in the south, through several quaint villages to the township of Clare in the north, with Main North Road as the main thoroughfare.
The Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend festival is now in its 28th year and was the first food & wine event of its kind in Australia. The event was created to celebrate the end of vintage each year and is focused on the fine food and wines for which the region has become famous.
Held over two days on the weekend of the 19th and 20th of May, the festival features many of the local wineries who have paired up with leading chefs to blend award-winning wines with superior local produce often to the tune of live music in the beauty of an authentic, relaxed wine country setting.
The purchase of a wine tasting glass for $5 at the first port of call acts as a passport and can be used at all participating wineries.
