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”. To date, Yalumba is the only estate with their own vine nursery, established in 1975, and feeding off the original 12ha planted over 165 years ago. Yalumba wines have a style all of their own and each have been influenced by a diverse range of elements.
Yalumba are stake-holders in The Winery of Good Hope, one of SA’s most respected producers and current holders of Platter’s “Red Wine of the Year”.
