Penna Lane’s managing director, Peter Treloar, has a connection with the Clare wine region that began five generations ago.
In 1865 Peter’s ancestor, Francis Treloar, acquired land in Watervale and planted the first vines in the area which became known as Springvale.
More recently Peter was a founding partner of Heritage Wines, which was originally established just south of the township of Clare in 1984. Heritage Wines moved from Clare to the Barossa in 1986.
The Penna Lane vineyard is recognised as one of the best in the Clare Valley. Based on the philosophy that good wine is made in the vineyard, great care was taken with the original plantings and this level of vineyard rigour continues today.
Trellising consists of a single fruiting wire and moveable foliage wires, which enable us to vertically position the shoots for better bunch exposure. This allows the grapes to achieve maximum ripeness and stronger flavour.
