Begin your tour learning more about the history of Clare Valley. Hear detailed, fully-narrated stories of the Valley and its early pioneers. Visit the grave of Clare’s first settler John Horrocks, and the landmark tree under which he first camped. Next, enjoy an intimate, guided tour of well-regarded Sevenhill Cellars, established by the society of Jesuits in 1851. Hear their stories, learn about their wine-making, inspect their 160-year-old vines, and, of course, taste their world-famous wines.  From here, travel on back roads through vineyards and farmland with stunning views of the rolling landscapes.  Sample wines from some of the Valley’s younger stars like Hill River Estate, Pikes, Paulett, or Reillys. Enjoy your lunch at a chosen winery.  Then, make a stop in the charming, historic township of Mintaro, established around 1850 as an overnight stop for Ox drays carting the rich ore of the Burra Mines to Port.  Visit Wakefield, another the heritage-listed town, which is home to the first Jesuit church built in Australia. Step back in time with a guided tour of the lavish Georgian mansion Martindale Hall, a unique estate built in 1879. The mansion is also known for being the setting for iconic Australian film, Picnic at Hanging Rock.  Last, travel the backroads from Mintaro to the picturesque Skillogalee Valley, where you will finish your day with afternoon tea at Skillogalee Restaurant.
