Moshos leaves Petaluma

Published:  23 July, 2008

Con Moshos, a winemaker at famed Australian producer Petaluma for 25 years, is leaving the comp`ny to take over the reins at Eden Valley winery Mountadam.
Moshos's departure follows that of the estate's founder, Brain Croser, who gave up his consultancy role there last year. Petaluma was taken over by the Lion Nathan wine group in a hostile takeover in 2001.

Andrew Hardy, general manager at Petaluma, said: The legacy Con leaves at Petaluma is an experienced, highly talented winemaking team who have the capability and confidence to continue the absolute quality focus that will see us maintain and advance Petaluma's position. My role as general manager will continue, overseeing viticualturea and winemaking and working closely with this longstanding team.'

Moshos commented: The timeis right in my career to take on such an irresistible new challenge. Being given the reins to one of Australia's most renowned and idiosyncratic wines is an opportunity I cannot ignore.'

Moshos joins Moutadam, which was bought by Jenni and David Brown from LVMH last year, as chief winemaker and viticulturalist.
