Family Friendly Wineries with a Restaurant in the Clare Valley

Taking the kids up to the Clare Valley? Don’t think they’ll get bored going from one winery to another. There is plenty for the kids to enjoy, and even some with a restaurant!

Pikes Wines

No matter which of the family members are joining you for the day out, we promise everyone will find something they love here. Start at the Tasting Room, where you can taste the many wines from their range (no seriously, there are so many varieties in the line-up). Their menu, like most in the region, will change see. Tasonally depending on what the chef can get his hands on. If wine isn't your thing, or you're keen to try the full experience, head next door to the Pikes Brewery Tap Room for a tasting paddle that often features limited releases, like a choc-hazelnut porter or a mandarin Berliner Weisse, depending on what's been brewed. Or stick to the classic pale ales and lager. Once you're sorted with your drinks, maybe you're feeling a bit of a rumble in the tummy. The Beer Garden menu is available daily, where you can enjoy a juicy burger, shoestring fries and wings (menu changes depending on availability) best enjoyed basking on the lawn in the sunshine. 


O'Leary Walker Wines

Lucious lawns and rolling vineyards is your view when dining at O'Leary Walker Wines in Leasingham. Head Chef BJ celebrates seasonality with an elevated menu featuring fresh produce from across South Australia and, of course, the Clare Valley. Opt for outdoor dining to take in the relaxing atmosphere and keep an eye on the kids whilst they enjoy the large lawns with sporting equipment, a toy box, colouring-in and lawn games to keep them occupied. The kid's menu is sure to please even the most fastidious diners whilst you enjoy chef-prepared plates or a platter (we're talking a seriously gourmet platter, don't deprive yourself of it). 



Paulett Wines

Looking for a coffee and morning/afternoon tea, a regional platter, or a gourmet feast to delight the senses like never before paired with the most exquisite views? Paulett Wines really does cover all basis. Head Chef Thomas' Erky' Erkelenz's menu features local and Australian products from both their onsite Bush Devine Garden and around the countryside; you might even find a crocodile on the menu! The kids can join in on the gourmet festivities with cheese & crackers, ham and cheese toasties, chicken & chips and housemade pasta on their menu, finished off with Golden North Icecream with their favourite toppings. Included with their meal is an activity pack to keep them entertained, allowing you to enjoy the atmosphere for longer. 



Mr Mick Wines, Clare

Convienitely located an absolutely gorgeous, we'd highly recommend Mr Mick Wines. Their beautiful cellar door is situated in the original Stanley Wine Company building, housing a tapas restaurant with an ever-changing menu (including one especially for the kids). Plenty of colouring sheets and games are available to keep them entertained whilst you enjoy the goodies. When the sun is shining, the best seat in the house is out on the lawn in the warmth, or in winter around their custom-built firepit (it really is stunning).
