The Armagh Wine District includes wineries in the Clare Valley Wine Region, near ship of Armagh, west of Clare. Armagh is a small historic village located about 137 km north of Adelaide. It was originally founded in 1850 as a service town for a copper mine at Emu Flat. Today the rolling hills surrounding Armagh are known for the production of olives, grapes and wine. There are few remnants of the old mining town era. The historic Miner’s Home Hotel is now a private museum. To fully enjoy all the delights of the Clare Valley visitors can take the 300 km long, self-drive Heartland Heritage Trail. This route through the Clare Valley takes in seven of the Valley’s historic towns, various wineries, restaurants, art galleries, and more than 30 pubs. Maps can be obtained from the local Visitor
Centres. Armagh and the delightful bed and breakfasts and farmstays and other accommodation makes a perfect base
for exploring the Clare Valley. There are several excellent courses in the area and other sporting facilities.
