Clare Valley Wine Region

The Clare Valley is located next door to its well-known wine growing cousin, the Barossa Valley and approximately a 90-minute drive north from Adelaide Australia. It is one of the coolest mainland wine-growing regions in Australia and produces superb and complex Rieslings. Clare Valley wines are rapidly gaining an international reputation.

While a few of the larger wineries have a base here, Clare Valley is known for its boutique wineries whose cellar doors are generally located in close proximity to each other along the Main North Road, on a Clare Valley map. This makes wine tours of the Clare Valley convenient and easy.

Sevenhill Cellars winery in Clare Valley is one of the most unusual of all of the wineries. It was started in 1848 by the Jesuits to create sacramental wine, a tradition that continues today.

Given its closeness to Adelaide, group Adelaide tours leaving from the centre of the city to the Clare Valley are popular day trips. You can also hire a car in Adelaide and drive into the Adelaide hills for your own self-drive adventure through this lesser-known wine region. Get yourself a map of Adelaide and head north towards Gawler and then onto Clare, the main town in the Clare Valley.

The region has many hidden treasures to explore in terms of wine, restaurants and its beautiful heritage buildings. Spend a few days in a secluded B&B accommodation in the Clare Valley or pack your clubs for a round at the Clare Country Club. The Clare Valley is certainly worth the visit the next time you are in Adelaide.
