South Australia | Adelaide Hills

James' Review

Tapanappa came home in many ways in 2015. It has the original Petaluma winery back, and a cellar door at the picturesque Tiers vineyard. Equally importantly, it is now wholly owned by Brian and Ann Croser, albeit with the involvement of daughter and son-in-law Lucy and Xavier Bizot. The business as usual components are the Whalebone Vineyard at Wrattonbully (planted to cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot over 30 years ago), the Tiers Vineyard at Piccadilly in the Adelaide Hills (chardonnay), and the Foggy Hill Vineyard on the southern tip of the Fleurieu Peninsula (pinot noir). Exports to the UK, France, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.


Tapanappa is a family fine wine company, owned and operated by the Croser family of the Piccadilly Valley.

Tapanappa Wines has a core philosophy of “using Australia’s most expressive and unique distinguished sites to create fine wines of distinction."


That philosophy is expressed through Tapanappa’s three distinguished site vineyards.

The Tiers Vineyard planted with Chardonnay in the Piccadilly Valley in 1979.
The Whalebone Vineyard planted with the Cabernet varieties in Wrattonbully in 1974.
The Foggy Hill Vineyard planted with Pinot Noir on the Fleurieu Peninsula in 2003.

“The wines from these distinguished sites are pure expressions of their unique terroirs.”
