Icons of the Barossa
A day in the Barossa
At Yalumba, oak barrels, family artefacts and artworks line the walls of the famous Wine Room where passionate Wine Room Ambassadors introduce visitors to the wines and many stories of Yalumba, whilst the landscaped grounds overlooked by the historic clock tower set the perfect scene to enjoy a picnic in the warm Barossa sun.
Yalumba is the only winery in Australia and one of a few worldwide to craft their own oak barrels onsite. During the week, visitors can explore the cooperage on a self-guided tour, smell the woody scent and see the coopers in a workshop that dates back to the late 1800s.
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. Yalumba is committed to sharing stories of provenance gathered over more than 168 years of history of family winemaking.
The company has an enduring commitment to the quintessential Australian wine, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz blend, crafting its interpretation of the blend since the 1880s. Its wines - The Signature and The Caley - are both acknowledged as international benchmarks for the style.
South Australia’s beautiful Eden Valley, known as the garden of grapes and gums, is one of Australia’s premier cool climate wine regions characterised by its rugged beauty and varied topography. Eden Valley wines are distinctive in their character, displaying wonderful aromatics, elegance, complexity and finesse.
