Established in 1849, Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery. It remains fiercely independent through generational ownership by the Hill-Smith family.
Yalumba’s longevity and success is a result of patience, collaboration and progressive thinking. There is foresight to embrace the natural terroir to craft wines with individual character and a sense of purpose, a spirit to reinvest in the land upon which it operates and knowledge to behave as a leader in the industry.
Yalumba wines are modern takes on classic Barossa varietals. Yalumba is not afraid to push the boundaries and experiment to improve the quality of its wines. Wines are made to be delicious, savoury and perfect partners for food or special occasions. They have texture, interest and balance, and a bit of an edge. They are created to excite and challenge you, taking you on a journey with every glass.
With its own on-site Cooperage, operational since the turn of the 20th century and the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, Yalumba has the advantage of being able to have full control over the oak used to craft and age its premium wines.
Being in harmony with the natural environment has been at the core of Yalumba since Samuel Smith planted his first vines by moonlight on the same farm where Yalumba stands today. Robert Hill-Smith and his family are committed to preserve not only the landscape in which the business operates but also to ensure the community and its people thrive and prosper for generations to come.
