In 1856, Hugh Reilly a shoemaker from Ireland arrived in the tiny township of Mintaro, in the Clare Valley. Over the next 10 years, Hugh converted the stone barn that had been his home into Reilly's Cottage which served as the local Cobbler's Shop in the centre of the bustling town, which had boomed with the discovery of slate in the area.
Almost 140 years later, the cottage has been restored to its former glory by distant relatives of Hugh, the Ardill family, and once again it is a hive of activity and home to Reilly's Wines. Reilly's Cottage is now a Cellar Door and Restaurant where you can sample crisp, clean Rieslings and big, bold reds, stay for lunch or have a break for a few nights in heritage B&B Cottages.
At the cellar door you can sample Reilly's range of premium wines, including the award winning 2005 Dry Land Cabernet Sauvignon, and learn more about the unique dry land growing conditions. The gourmet restaurant menu offers mouth-watering dishes designed to complement Reilly's wines. All dishes feature the freshest local produce. Specials change daily so there is always something new to try.
