Yalumba, Australia's Oldest Family-Owned Winery!

Friday, September 20, 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

A moon lit planting five generations ago has made Yalumba Australia’s most historic family owned winery! Located near the town of Angaston, South Australia in the Barossa Valley wine region. It was founded by a British brewer, Samuel Smith, who emigrated to Australia with his family from Wareham, Dorset in August 1847 aboard the ship 'China'. A year after arriving in Australia, Smith purchased a 30-acre block of land on the settlement's south eastern boundary. He named his property "Yalumba" after an indigenous Australian word for "all the land around". In 1849 Samuel Smith, along with his son Sidney, planted Yalumba's first vineyards, beginning the Yalumba dynasty. Today Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned winery. Join us for an incredible tasting of these very special wines!
