Reillys Wines is one wine destination not to miss. It is a proudly family owned and operated winery with its cellar door, restaurant, and heritage B&Bs located in the heritage town of Mintaro, nestled in the Clare Valley.
Reillys Wines encompasses the heart and soul of this wine region. Guests will be warmly welcomed and will quickly forget the hustle and bustle of busy life from the moment they step through the door.
Their winemaking philosophy is to produce premium wines with limited winemaking intervention, allowing the quality fruit to truly shine. Popular bottles in their lineup are the award winning 2020 Reillys Watervale Riesling, 2014 RCV Epitaph Shiraz and 2015 Reillys Sparkling Shiraz.
The building was originally owned by Hugh Reilly back in 1856, who inspired the Ardill’s to name their wine label ‘Reillys Wines’, in homage to its historical roots.
Reillys Cellar Door is open for wine tasting every day from 10am until 4pm, and the Restaurant is open Friday through to Monday, offering tasting plates, A La Carte options and their famous 5 course Long Lunch, which perfectly complements their estate-grown wines.
If you are looking to spend a weekend in the gorgeous Clare Valley, Reillys’ four heritage B&B cottages have undergone recent upgrades, with each room offering rustic country-style accommodation along with today’s luxuries.
Guests will enjoy cooked and continental breakfast upon arrival, including bread, bacon, eggs, fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits and cereals, as well as a variety of beverages. Firewood is included along with a complimentary bottle of Reillys wine and chocolates, making it the ideal place to spend a romantic weekend away.
Located behind Reillys Cellar Door on Hill Street, it is a short stroll from all of Mintaro’s attractions and the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Clare Valley.
Reillys Wines is also excited to be part of Tasting Australia with an event called ‘A Day in Mintaro’, created in collaboration with the Magpie and Stump Hotel, taking place on May 1 and 2, with bus transfers running from Adelaide. The day will include a hands-on wine blending session and a lunch as the team from the two venues act as your personal tour guides as they show you around the heritage town of Mintaro in the Clare Valley.
They will also be taking part in the Clare Valley Gourmet Week, running from the 14 to 23 of May. This will be a delight for the senses whether you are a seafood, meat, or cheese lover, and of course, dishes will be perfectly complemented by the delicious creations at Reillys Wines.
