1 DAY
CLARE VALLEY WINE TOUR

Description
At 9:00am you are collected from your hotel for a picturesque journey through rural landscapes and small towns as you head towards the Clare Valley.

Your first introduction to the Valley is the quaint town of Auburn where you stop for morning tea at the elegant Tatehams. You can begin your tasting of a regional collection of Clare Valley wines in the cellars below or at the exemplary Grosset's winery nearby. You travel along a scenic route through Penwortham to Mitchell's winery where Jane and Andrew Mitchell host a tasting of their fine wines.

A gourmet lunch, accompanied by the best of local wines, will be provided at the charming Skillogalee restaurant and winery nearby. After lunch, Rob Palmer, the winemaker and owner, may escort you through the vineyards of Skillogalee.

You then visit the Sevenhill Cellar run by the Jesuits. Here you can visit the historic church and explore the heritage of the first vineyard in the region.

You meet Brother May, the winemaker, and see the original underground cellars.

From Sevenhill Cellars you travel on to Clare where you visit the innovative Tim Knappstein winery. Knappstein was one of the first Australian winemakers to experiment successfully with Fume Blanc style wines.

From Clare you begin your return journey visiting the old slate mining town of Mintaro on your way. If time permits you can have a drink at the old Magpie & Stump or visit the stately Martindale Hall.
