I went up to the Clare Valley this weekend, to pick up my new car (yay!). The Clare Valley is wine country, known for its Rieslings. There's many lovely wineries to visit, some of which are in beautiful old stone buildings, such as this.
The scenery is quite lovely
There's some antique shops to poke around in
And some good restaurants and cafes, including the Citadel, where I was lucky enough to have lunch. Great food and a stunning vista from the verandah where we dined. Their bowls of rosemary roast potatoes with garlic aioli are so good. And the weather was perfect as we sat there sipping our local wine, looking out across the vines, the pencil pines and the gently rolling hills.
