Holidays in Yalumba Wines

Holiday Travel Guide
Yalumba Wines which includes signage

Meander through the historic gardens of the oldest family-owned winery in Australia and discover elegant and nuanced wines from one of the country’s award-winning vineyards.

Nestled in the famed Barossa Valley, the welcoming 150-year-old Yalumba Wine Room honours its heritage as Australia’s oldest, family-owned vineyard. Big oak barrels, family artefacts and artworks line the walls. If visiting on a cool day, warm up by the fire before tasting of some of the most awarded wines in the country.

Founded in 1849 by British migrant and brewer Samuel Smith, the first vines were called "Yalumba", an Aboriginal word meaning "all the land around". Since these early days, Yalumba has grown in size and popularity, and has been awarded some of the most prestigious wine awards in the country.

Enjoy tastings from the various wine collections, learn to distinguish between grape varieties and understand their characteristics to pair with food. Try the specialty of the estate, the exotic viognier, or a classic Barossa Shiraz or grenache, or taste a traditional cabernet sauvignon or Shiraz blend.

Find out what differentiates a Reserve from the Signature, or a Menzies from the tabletop Y series. Ask about the collection of organic wines and the museum reserve of fortified wines. Discover the unique grape varieties emerging in Australia in which Yalumba are pioneering, including the cienna, marsanne, sangiovese rose and tempranillo.

Yalumba is the only winery in Australia and one of a few worldwide to craft their own oak barrels onsite. This allows the winery to have complete control of the quality of the oak in which the wines age and contributes to the distinct characteristic of Yalumba wines. 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.

After a free tasting in the Wine Room, meander through the gardens to the Clock Tower Building and lay on a rug with a bottle of wine and a picnic.

Winery tours are not available to the general public but you are welcome to explore the gardens and cooperage on a self-guided tour. The Yalumba Wine Room is a scenic 1-hour drive from Adelaide through the rolling hills of the Barossa Valley.
