In the Clare Valley, row upon row of elegant vines sit beside untamed Australian bush and pristine farmland. With five separate and uniquely diverse sub-regions, the Clare Valley is an expanse of sweeping gullies and rolling hills.

The region is one of Australia’s oldest wine-producing areas, with a winemaking history dating back 150 years. The first vineyards were planted in the 1830s by European settlers, who built stone hewn structures and cottages alongside the vines. Today, there are more than 5,000 hectares under vine, and over 40 cellar door outlets. Grape growers claim the unique combination of geography, geology and climate, results in terroir that is perfect for producing world-class wine. Warm days, coupled with cool nights during the growing season provide favourable conditions for most wine varieties grown in the region.

The most important white variety is Riesling, with the Clare Valley regarded as its Australian home. Principal red varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. They make a range of styles of varietal wines, reflecting different approaches to winemaking as well as the influences of the various sub-regions and micro-climates in the valleys. Many other lesser varieties are also grown, including Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo and Grenache.
