Petaluma, founded in 1976, crafts ultra-premium wines by carefully selecting the best sites within a particular region suited to a chosen variety. This is their 'distinguished vineyards' philosophy. This pioneering attitude towards responsive and instinctive viticulture and winemaking is as uncompromising and true today as it was more than 35 years ago. Established in 1976, Petaluma has unlocked the great potential of Riesling from the Hanlin Hill Vineyard in Clare, pioneered the Piccadilly Valley and Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills and cemented the pedigree of the Evans Vineyard in Coonawarra, South Australia. Winemaker Andrew Hardy and the Petaluma team firmly adhere to the tenet that if the vineyards are great, and the winemaking responsive, the wines will be outstanding. Indeed, Andrew sees his role as custodian of the vineyards.
Petaluma consulted with Polymaster to find out the best way to separate sludge from their wastewater streams and increase the volume of water they are able to recycle.
Polymaster was able to increase Petaluma's efficiency and volume of recycled water captured by internally modifying the conical based Silomaster. Complete with internal stilling well, tundish overflows and a design to avoid capturing floating objects, made this a highly efficient and cost-effective solution.
Cost-efficiencies were gained with more recycled water captured and less contaminated waste disposal.
