A comfortable, custom cooking area at Thorn Park by the Vines in Clare Valley, Australia

There is no finer pairing than food and wine, so it only makes sense to open a cooking school in wine country. Home to classes led by the convivial David Hay (who owns the property along with his partner, Michael Speers), Thorn Park by the Vines offers an elegant and sophisticated boutique escape. Outside, you will find gum trees, wild olive trees and grape vines, while indoors (along with three stylish suites) a custom kitchen hosts classes for groups of two to four. Featuring formal and casual menus inspired by Hay's travels to Europe, Turkey and Asia, class-prepared meals are complemented with regional varietals, such as Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon.
