Stone Bridge Wines
One of the perks of touring cellar doors in the Clare Valley is that you often encounter the passionate people who founded the wineries. That’s the case at Stone Bridge Wines, where you’ll find Craig and Lisa Thomson ready to share their diverse range of true-to-style, hand-crafted wines.
Their rammed-earth cellar door with combustion fire blazing during winter is a welcoming spot to taste the results from the Thomson’s 45-year-old dry-grown Riesling patch or 60-year-old Grenache bush vines. There’s something to please all tastes in their line-up, from sparkling wines through to shiraz and even fortified wines.
During the warmer months, the couple’s hospitality extends outdoors on weekends with Craig firing up the wood oven to cook delicious gourmet pizzas. It’s an idyllic spot, with many visitors happy to spend an afternoon under the old oak tree, while the kids roam the surrounding grounds.
