Wines of brilliance and innovation
The Clare Valley wine region is located north of the city of Adelaide. The GI region is 680 km2 in size and has a total of 5093 hectares of vineyards. The region was settled in the late 1830s, with the first vineyards planted and wines produced in the early 1840s.
The climate features a warm to hot summer, but cooling afternoon breezes play a major role in slowing down the ripening process.
The main varieties grown in the region are Riesling, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
