Session 20 - Clare Valley

Think of Clare and quite possibly you'll think of Riesling  - and yes there will be a few of those in this tasting, our first of the year. But Clare is no one-trick pony, and this tasting sees a few varietals make their first appearance: Barbera and Malbec, along with the return of Graciano and standards such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
Secure a place, when they open up on twitter on Monday 11th February, for our tasting on 19th February, and learn about this classic region with host for the night Kate Giles (@DontCallMeKatie).
