Just a few low-fi pics from my bike ride and day of wine tasting in the Clare Valley. Thanks to all the wonderful winemakers and cellar door staff that were so friendly. And to my Craftworks bike for being the best bikey friend a fella could have…

Riding along the Riesling Trail, an old railway track put to brilliant use by the wonderful folk of the Clare Valley.
First detour, a stop to pay respects to one of the most highly prized names in Australian wine, Wendouree.
Some of the Gnarly vines at Wendouree. Beautiful things.
More old vines at Wendouree. Such a beautiful corner of the world. So peaceful.
Back on the trail, and some more picturesque vines behind Tim Adams winery.
Ok, hopefully one of the last pics of vines, but shows why the Clare Valley is actually the Clare Valley. Because it is a Valley. Unlike Henschke's Hill of Grace vineyard. Which isn't on a Hill. Just saying..
I felt kind of bad about having a go at the Hill of Grace Vineyard. So what better place to cleanse but at Sevenhill?
And here is where I prayed to the Virgin asking for Divine Intervention to allow the Jesuits to get some money to finally finish the steeple on their magnificent church.
Well, i’ll be doing a load more of these style of posts as I tour SA’s wine regions intensively over the next six months. Send any feedback to email@example.com.
