wine experience


The team at Watervale Hotel are passionate about fresh local food and Clare Valley produce.

OUR wine is worth experiencing

Flight Lounge – Share a Flight at Watervale

Between 5pm and 7pm every evening the Watervale Hotel lounge bars turn Cellar Door and offers flights of wines selected from our by the glass list.

Guests can select four wines in their flight and as well as a serve of stuffed olives for $30 / head. Guests will learn about Clare Valley terroir, geology, geography and what makes our wines so diverse and positively different.  

For groups of 8 or more we can include other wines not on our by the glass list. 

Wine Paired Dining

Diners can request wine matching with their meals at any time. This can be with our A La Carte menu, Group Feasts or Degustation experiences. 

Wine Matched Degustation Dinners

We run regular wine matched dinners, and can tailor a wine matched degustation dinner for groups in private rooms. For example we could arrange a dinner with wines from wineries that you do not visit when you are in Clare, or wines that do not have Cellar Doors. Please make contact to arrange a special dinner by emailing

We can match our Chefs Table and Degustation dining experiences with wine or other beverages.

Some of these are partner events with winemaking suppliers, such as the regular “Kilikanoon Revelation Degustation” which features Kilikanoon’s most awarded wines matched with Watervale Hotel menu.

Bookable on request- 6 person minimum   $150 / head.

Others are promoted on our social media.
