Much, much more than a wine tour, Clare UnCorked is designed to give you a unique insight into the Clare Valley and how it came to be.
Fear not, we’ll be sampling the very best food and wine along the way, but we want this to be an insightful experience as well.
We start with a tour of the Valley’s very first winery, Sevenhill Cellars, a sacred site of sacramental wine and spiritual character. Built by the society of Jesuits in 1851, it’s home to some of the oldest vines in Australia, planted from cuttings taken from Bungaree Station. These vines were tended by the men of faith, some of whom still lie in the on-site crypt. It’s an awe-inspiring story that sets the tone for the day.
From here, we’ll travel on back roads and private property, through vineyards and farmland with stunning views of Polish Hill River and beyond. There’s no shortage of photo opportunities.
