CLARE VALLEY WINE TASTING EVENING

AUSTRALIA'S CLARE VALLEY COMES TO BLACKROCK CASTLE
WINEMAKER TIM ADAMS IS YOUR GUIDE FOR THE EVENING  






THE CLARE VALLEY STORY   

They have been making wine in Australia’s Clare Valley since the 1840s and the story, which has strong Irish connections, comes to Cork, to Blackrock Castle to be exact, on Tuesday week. Indeed, the valley was named by Edward Gleeson (known as the King of Clare) who left Sixmilebridge (Co. Clare) in 1850.

Tim Adams, owner and wine-maker of Tim Adams Wines, will be your guide to the valley at the Blackrock Castle event. Tim will present and show not only his own wines but those of five other producers:  O'Leary Walker, Wakefield, Mt Horrocks, Knappstein and Jim Barry. Nibbles will also be available at the tasting.

Nestled within the South Australian bush land, the vineyards of the Clare Valley are some of Australia's finest. Perfumed Riesling, delicate Semillon, aromatic Shiraz and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon are some of the highlights of this region.  

And you can meet them all at the Castle on Tuesday September 7th at 6.45pm (‘til 8.30pm). Tickets available from Wine Australia Ireland (details below).
