Distinguished wines from Sevenhill Cellars Estate – 169 years young!

Here at the Velocity Wine Store by Laithwaite’s, we pride ourselves on working with some pretty rare and underrated wineries. We love the opportunity to share the stories behind some of these lesser known estates and introduce their wines to a wider audience.

Our most recent undertaking? Sevenhill Cellars, from the beautiful Clare Valley. “One of the historical treasures of Australia” (Halliday), Sevenhill was established in 1851 when the Jesuits who settled in the area planted some of the Clare’s first vines to produce sacramental wines. The last Jesuit winemaker retired not so long ago! The distinguished Brother May hung up his winemaking hat in 2003 and was one of the initial inductees into the Clare Valley Wine Hall of Fame.
