Lillian emailed me with a very blunt question, Can you handle six women for a weekend?….
From Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, the ladies made their way to Clare Valley. The girls are long term friends scattered across this big country and Clare became the focus of the annual Girls weekend. I was given honorary womanhood for the weekend and away we went.
Two days of Clare Valley food and wine, two days of laughter, inclusive of an afternoon of raucous laughter at Skillogalee Restaurant.
Relaxation and catch ups, two days of no kids, husbands or distractions, just the girls. My brief was to create a unique authentic tour, a Clare Valley experience full of memories to take home. To take the ladies to the wineries they would enjoy the most, including a stunning lookout view at sunset. They came, they bought, they revelled. The Clare Valley weekend lingers on as the ladies share a Clare Valley wine at home reminiscing the Girls Weekend in Clare.
The girls stayed in the thoroughly charming town of Mintaro, noted as being one of the regions most captivating and picturesque villages. Mintaro is home to Martindale Hall, The Mintaro Maze, Magpie n Stump, Reillys Wines/Restaurant and Mintaro Wines.
