Tag Archives: Dog friendly

Home among the Gumtrees & long grass!

From ‘On the Road’ to ‘On da Block’! Back to SA & head down, butt up doing a cleanup of Da Block.

Water tanks full, grass long, weeds even longer!! 😦 But after some full on days we have it under control. The green is starting to tinge brown now coming into Summer. We’ve had hot days already, total fire ban days, then back to the temperatures I prefer….and on goes the fireplace!!

So for now just a few pics of Da Block. Did take ourselves out to a local cafe in Clare called Zest Cafe! Had breaky there and it was beautiful, highly recommended. And dog friendly which is important to us as Jeda goes where we go!!

Clare Cellar Doors: Stone Bridge, Shut the Gate, Kirrihill, Taylors, Mr Mick

Some more Cellar Doors we’ve visited over the past few months….

Stone Bridge Wines off Spring Gully Road, Sevenhill is a casual, dog  & people friendly cellar door and family owned winery. Between September & May they offer wood oven pizzas….and DESSERT pizzas! SOOO YUMMM! Their wines are easy drinking & well priced. We often take visitors there for a casual lunch.

Shut the Gate Wines on Main North Road, just south of Clare before the Info Centre, is easy to access, has a lovely area to eat lunch (you can make up your own picnic from their selection of local produce) & the wines aren’t bad too!

Kirrihill Wines, next to Kirrihill Bakery (handy for a cake & coffee after) on Main North Rd south of Clare, is a friendly cellar door with easy drinking wines.

Taylors Wines,  in Auburn is another winery offering tastings with option of cheese platters, pizzas on some weekends and tours. Three generations of winemakers have successfully produced some lovely wines catering to many tastes. We enjoy the ‘Taylor Made’ Malbec.

Mr Mick Wines,  located in Clare, offers cellar door tastings and tapas style dining. We also take visitors there for tastings & lunches. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Our favourite wines are the Vermentino, Tempranillo and the Tawny.
