The Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend showcases the beautiful wineries and fresh produce that the Clare Valley has to offer. Many visitors from near and far attend the event and this year they are expecting to welcome around 6,500 visitors. Clare Valley is voted by ‘Lonely Planet’ as one of the five best wine regions in the world to visit. More than 20 wineries will welcome people into their beautiful wine yards and introduce them to their wonderful products.
Today Adelaide Food Central was invited to a sneak peak preview of some of the wineries that will be involved in the Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend. We were lucky enough to sample wines from Wykari of Clare, Matriarch & Rogue, Sussex Squire Wines and Talbot’s Block. On Saturday the 20th of May the Sevenhill Hotel in Clare Valley will turn into a centre for innovation and revolution. Everyone will have the opportunity to taste these wines and speak to the wine makers. The Sevenhill Hotel will cater to your needs with delicious pub food and music. This is an event that should not be missed if taking a trip down to the Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend.
Adelaide Food Central would like to thank all the winemakers that allowed us to sample their delicious drops, as well as Claritas Marketing for having us.
