With more than 150 years of winemaking history, the Clare Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions. Originally inhabited by the indigenous Ngadjuri people, with Europeans arriving initially in Penwortham in 1839 with the first vines appearing in the early 1840s. The Clare Valley itself is 35kms (21.7mi) in length and a slim 5-10kms (3-6mi) in width, with vineyards lying between 320 and 570 meters (1049 and 1870ft) above sea level, such height possibly explaining the vibrant personality of the white wines produced in this region, particularly the Riesling, with strong lemon and lime characteristics.
Being self guided you can choose to enjoy this tour on any day or date that suits you (please be aware all venues are closed on Xmas day and many close for Boxing day and New Years day).
