Region Clare Valley

The Clare Valley

The Clare Valley is located two hours north of Adelaide in the Mount Lofty ranges. The region was settled by John Horrocks who encouraged his servant James Green to plant the first vines in 1842. Climate in the Clare Valley is continental with hot summers, cold winters and low rainfall that necessitates supplementary irrigation. Soils in the valley are predominantly red brown loams over shale, permitting excellent drainage. Many of the best vineyards are located at higher elevations of 400-500m on sites that take advantage of the cool breezes that funnel up the corrugation of hills from the south. The Clare Valley is renowned for its zesty fruit-pure Rieslings particularly from the sub-regions of Polish Hill and Watervale. The region also produces intense age-worthy sturdy reds from Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.


Established by Brian Croser in the late 1970's, Petaluma captured the imagination of the wine world and forged a path towards defining sub-regionality in Australia. Croser pioneered the idea of distinguished vineyard site in Australia, a variation of the French concept of terroir. Today with winemaker Andrew Hardy at the helm, Petaluma produces an extensive range of quality wines from selected vineyard sites across the sub-regions of South Australia that capture the expression of both the variety and the individual site. Croser is Petaluma’s premium sparkling wine range, comprising a Non Vintage (NV), a Rosé, a Vintage and a Late Disgorged style. All Croser sparkling wines are traditional method styles employing the classic varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
