Overview

Established by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1851, Sevenhill Cellars is the oldest winery in South Australia's Clare Valley and the only remaining Jesuit-owned winery in Australia. Originally set up to produce alter wine, Sevenhill is now recognised for its premium table wines, which express the Clare Valley's distinctivevarietal characteristics. The historic winery and cellar door, St Aloysius' Church, the College building and the surrounding vineyards and spiritual sites give visitors an opportunity to combine appreciation of some exceptional wines with an understanding of Sevenhill's religious and historic significance. You can discover this rich heritage on a guided walking tour or you can follow our walking trail using our map and information. Guided tours are scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday at 2pm or by appointment at weekends. At other times, visitors are welcome to undertake the tour by themselves, using our map and information.
