The region is one of Australia’s oldest wine-producing areas
As Australian wine regions go, the Clare Valley is small, accounting for only 1.3 per cent of the nation’s crush; however, its reputation is known internationally. You’ll find Clare Valley wines listed in five-star restaurants, as well as on aircraft flying around the world.
As one of the country’s oldest regions, steeped in tradition and heritage, it may be surprising to learn that the Clare Valley’s winemakers are also recognised for their innovation. In 2000, the region gained international attention for promoting a proprietary screw cap closure for their Riesling bottles and since then has been at the forefront of championing the use of the closure for all wine styles.
Grapegrowers claim the unique combination of geography, geology and climate, results in terroir that is perfect for producing world-class wine.
