Clare Valley, South Australia
We're not sending you completely off the beaten track, just halfway there, to the Clare Valley in South Australia. Forget the Barossa and McLaren Vale as the Clare Valley, a little further north of Adelaide, is where it's at. Make a beeline for Jesuit run Sevenhill Winery, if only for a taste of the Brother John May. The drop is a religious experience for wine lovers. Cruise through lovingly restored towns like Burra in this proud farming area, ramble through the hills and enjoy the fresh air of the Clare.
