Fine Wine Partners managing director Chris Baddock said: “Today’s announcement represents a multi-million dollar investment in the future of Petaluma and reinforces Fine Wine Partners’ commitment to a regionally-focused operating model of interdependent wineries.”
Petaluma senior winemaker Andrew Hardy said the announcement is fantastic news for the winemaking team: “We have always known we would eventually move to a new home and the Petaluma team is delighted to have found such a perfect location. We can now move forward with confidence doing what we love most; growing grapes and crafting regionally distinctive wines," he said.
The first Petaluma vintage at the new winery is expected to be 2015.
