We stopped in Clare in honour of our Claire and tasted wine at just one winery - all I was allowed by the kids, who are somewhat bored by wine tasting - not surprisingly. We did however go to lunch in Auburn, a rather small town nearby at a simply marvellous country pub called The Rising Sun. I would thoroughly recommend the food (as does Lonely Planet) and the people are very friendly. I can also tell you that the air conditioning works very well inside as it was well over 40 degrees outside. We all agreed that it (along with our El Questro meal) was one of the best of our trip.
