Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills wine region is located in the Mount Lofty Ranges of South Australia, about 20 kilometers southeast of Adelaide, the closest major city.

The climate of the Adelaide Hills is cool and wet, with moderate rainfall throughout the year. The region's high altitude and proximity to the coast also result in cool temperatures, which are ideal for producing cool-climate varietals such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Viticulture in the Adelaide Hills dates back to the mid-1800s, with the planting of the first vineyards by German settlers. However, it wasn't until the 1970s and 80s that the region began to gain recognition for its high-quality wines.

The first commercial winery in the Adelaide Hills was established in 1978 by Brian Croser, who planted the first vines at Petaluma. Croser's focus on cool-climate varietals helped establish the region as a producer of premium wines.
