  Clare Valley
by darthmilmo

Clare Valley is a beautiful wine growing region in Australia located just south of the Flinders Ranges and North of Adelaide. The vineyards here are world renown. The vineyard industry in the region was started by an Irishman, who developed it from scratch. He was then joined by others who stated their own vineyards.

We visited the Seven Hill Cellars vineyard, which is owned and operated by Jesuits. We had lunch at the premises. We then took part of a wine tasting. The wine from this vineyard was rather good so I bought a bottle of wine with Lynda to share later that evening. Continuing on our drive south, I was amazed by the perfect timing of the season. As it was spring, all around us there were beautiful wild flowers. The most beautiful ones were the blue flowers that lived on a hill just a few meters away from the vineyard.
