Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family-owned winery, established in the Barossa Valley in 1849 by Samuel Smith. The Hill-Smith family has remained at the helm for six generations, represented today by fifth-generation Robert Hill-Smith. As well as working closely with growers in the Barossa, Yalumba has its own estate vineyards in both the Barossa and Coonawarra. The winery is the only one in the southern hemisphere to have its own on-site cooperage and it has also maintained its own vine nursery since 1975. Red blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz – traditionally known as “Australian Clarets” – are a specialty at Yalumba, with The Signature and The Caley among Australia’s most prestigious fine wines.
