Yalumba

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, British migrant and English brewer, who had brought his family to Angaston seeking a new life. After purchasing a 30-acre parcel of land just beyond the southern-eastern boundary of Angaston, Smith and his son began planting the first vines by moonlight. Samuel named his patch "Yalumba" – aboriginal for "all the land around".

Six generations and more than 150 years later Yalumba, Australia's oldest family owned winery, has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers the world over.

As part of its ongoing commitment to environmental management, Yalumba has introduced three new wines which have been made from organically grown grapes. All grapes were selected from two South Australian vineyards which have been certified by the Soil Association of the UK and NASAA Australia as approved organic producers. Small quantities of Viognier and Shiraz were produced from the Barich family vineyard in Loxton and a Shiraz from the vineyard of Adrian Strachan in McLaren Vale.
