The definitive guide to Australian Wines
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, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.
