The rolling lush vines of Auburn welcome you to Clare Valley and signal the start of some of South Australia’s most fertile wine country. Just an hour and a half from Adelaide, this character-packed village is the southern gateway to Clare Valley and is home to historic cellar doors, restaurants and streets lined with heritage stone buildings. Feeling hungry? Head for Terroir Auburn
, where local, seasonal produce is on the menu. With your stomach lined, wash it all down with a glass or two of Clare’s famed Riesling; Koonowla Wines
, Velvet & Willow
and Taylors Wines
await. Counteract the feasting by hiring some wheels from Clare and cycling 35 kilometres across stunning wine country along the Riesling Trail
, which starts in Auburn, stopping to quench your thirst along the way.
