Yalumba Turns 165!

17th Nov. 2014  /  OUR BRANDS  ·  Yalumba

On November 17th, Yalumba celebrated its 165th birthday. To celebrate the big day, Yalumba proprietor Robert Hill-Smith re-affirmed that his winery will remain independent, innovative and forward thinking: “It is a time for intelligent perseverance, innovation, ideas creation and discipline to generate growth,” he said. “Whilst we believe 46 wineries are currently for sale, and notable sales and closures are in the news, we continue to invest in new vineyards and plantings, winery improvements in bottling and logistics, leadership training and up-skilling.” An example of this mindset in action is the visit of Yalumba’s winemaking team this past August to Yinchuan to see the new techniques used here in China. 

Yalumba was founded in 1849 by Hill-Smith’s great great-grandfather Samuel Smith, a brewer who immigrated to South Australia from Dorset.
