Welcome to Petaluma
At Petaluma, they approach every single step of the winemaking process with precision. Making a wine involves hundreds of decisions, and they believe each one is significant. They must all be carefully considered because each vine is completely individual, each season is different and every parcel of wine unique. Petaluma's distinguished vineyard philosophy takes them to Coonawarra for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Clare Valley for Riesling and Adelaide Hills for Chardonnay, Shiraz and Sparkling Wine.
Their Cellar Door
The Petaluma cellar door accompanies their state-of-the-art winery on estate vineyards in the Adelaide Hills township of Woodside, just a 40-minute drive from Adelaide CBD. Offering expansive views of the Adelaide Hills, the converted farmstead has a modern, elegant interior in which to enjoy a fine wine experience. Visit them in Woodside and choose from a selection of wine flights, including a Croser sparkling flight, Chardonnay flight or a Yellow Label flight, each served with a tasting of local produce. You can also enjoy their wines by the glass, including limited releases, museum back vintages and cellar door exclusives. Plan your trip
