The Clare Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions located around 100km north of Adelaide. The tradition of winemaking has been associated with the region since the early 19th century. Explorer Edward Gleeson named the region ‘Clare’ after his county in Ireland, inspired by the rolling hills and beautiful vistas. The region's warm days, cool nights and minimal rainfall create ideal conditions for growing premium grapes. Before European settlement, the aboriginal people of Ngadiuri tribe lived in Clare valley and the area is rich in their heritage, culture and story.
