Spotlight on Clare Valley Wine
The Clare Valley in South Australia is famous as one of the oldest wine regions in Australia. Clare Valley Rieslings are famous the world over, but growing conditions are also very good for red wines such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The Clare Valley has over 40 wineries, most of which are located in the towns Auburn and Clare.
The history of the Clare Valley can be traced back to settles from England, Ireland and Poland who first moved into the region during the 1840s. Sevenhill Cellars was the first winery in the Clare Valley and was founded by the Jesuits in 1851. Abbelio Wines carries a great selection of Sevenhill wines - why not try a sampler case!
