Established in 1849, Yalumba is Australia’s most historic family owned wine company. It remains fiercely independent and extremely progressive through the 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. It is committed to sharing stories of provenance gathered over more than 168 years of history of family winemaking.
With its own on-site Cooperage, operational since the turn of the 20th century, 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.
