Agriculture has always been the cornerstone of the community allowing for a fantastic range of local food to be grown, farmed and produced in the region. Beef, freerange chicken, ethically produced lamb, as well as freerange eggs, jams, condiments and other produce are just some of the items to look out for during your visit.
Follow the Epicurean Way and Clare Valley Food Trail to discover the region's best vineyard restaurants, gourmet pub fare, funky cafés, providores, bakeries, butchers and farm gate outlets. A long lunch is recommended to relax and enjoy the food, wine and scenery on offer.
Clare Valley also hosts a range of fantastic gourmet events, including the Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend in May, and Clare with Fresh Air in October.
