5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion
2004 Decanter Magazine Man of the Year (Brian Croser)

"Petaluma, founded in 1976, crafts ultra-premium wines by carefully selecting the best sites within a particular region suited to a chosen variety. This is our 'distinguished vineyards' philosophy. This pioneering attitude towards responsive and instinctive viticulture and winemaking is as uncompromising and true today as it was more than 35 years ago." - Petaluma

"The Petaluma range has been expanded beyond the core group of Croser Sparkling, Clare Valley Riesling, Piccadilly Chardonnay and Coonawarra (cabernet sauvignon merlot). Newer arrivals of note include Adelaide Hills Viognier and Adelaide Hills Shiraz. The SA plantings in the Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Adelaide Hills provide a more than sufficient source of estate-grown grapes for the wines. A new winery and cellar door were opened in 2015 on a greenfield site with views of Mt Lofty. In '17 it (along with all wine brands owned by Lion Nathan) was acquired by Accolade" - James Halliday
