No visit to the Clare Valley is complete without a visit to the historic Sevenhill Cellars – the first winery ever established in the region! A great wine-tasting experience is available here and you’ll learn about their strong connections with Jesuits who settled in the area in 1851 to plant vines for sacramental purposes, and maybe even spot a Brother or two, as Sevenhill remains the only Jesuit-owned winery in Australia.
But aside from the history and the wine, this place ROCKS for children and families. For starters, the indoor play corner is quite possibly the best one I’ve seen in a cellar door itself – and I’ve seen a few! Our little people were more than happy to spend sometime here whilst we did a tasting.
Plus outside there were HUGE expanses of green lawn to play on, totem tennis, a basket full of balls for a kick around and a general family-friendly feel.
