Product Description

One day, two men with a wheelbarrow settled on this block of land and laid out a farm, built a small house and planted some vines.

170 years later, one of the outstanding wineries in the region and historic buildings that include a gracious church and spiritual retreat centre are the results of their efforts.

This book tells the story of their struggle and their legacy.

It is about Sevenhill Cellars in the Clare Valley of South Australia, as well as the Jesuits and their mission at Sevenhill, which once extended for hundreds of kilometres and now reaches beyond Australia.
