climate The Polish Hill River Valley District (also referred to as a sub-region) in the Clare Valley Wine Region, includes vineyards and wineries in the Polish Hill River Valley, east of the township of Sevenhill and in the area centred by Penwortham and Polish Hill River. The old Catholic Church at Polish Hill River has been transformed into a charming museum dedicated to the history and stories of the Polish migrants who first started arriving in the young South Australian colony in 1850s. The museum showcases the hardships and triumphs of the Polish community as they struggled to build a new life in a country on the other side of the world. One of the typical wineries in the area is Pikes Wines that was established in 1984 with the purchase of 38 ha of prime land on the eastern side of the Clare Valley. The grape vines are planted into red and brown earth soils over clay subsoil. Varieties grown are Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese, Semillon, Viognier, Merlot, Mourvedre, Pinot Grigio and others. The climate in this district is a little cooler and the unique soils combine to generate wines with their own distinctive terroir. The wines of the Polish Hill River area are much sought after and have a wonderful reputation. The Winery and Cellar Door are a constructed from renovated 1860`s stone shearing shed, and a new administration and function area has been added in the same style. Some of the other wineries in the area include: # Barletta Bros, Pauletts Wines, Pikes Polish Hill Wines, The Wilson Vineyard.

The Clare Valley Wine Region includes eleven districts : Watervale ; Mintaro ; Leasingham ; Auburn ; Gilbert Valley ; Stanley Flat ; Armagh ; Burra ; Clare ; Polish Hill River ; Sevenhill
