Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia Welcomes Yalumba to the Collection

April 17, 2018 Beverage No Comments Email Email

Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia (UWEA) is pleased to announce the inclusion of iconic Australian winery, Yalumba, to the collection. Located in South Australia’s Eden Valley region, Yalumba is much-loved and revered Australian wine brand.

Established in 1849, by Samuel Smith a British migrant, Yalumba takes its name from the Aboriginal meaning ‘All the land around’ and is Australia’s most historic family owned winery. A fiercely independent fine wine producer, Yalumba is driven by the preservation of provenance, progressive thinking, sustainability and excellence.

Yalumba 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.

With its own on-site Cooperage, operational since the turn of the 20th century, Yalumba has the advantage of being able to have full control over the oak used to craft and age its premium wines.

Yalumba’s magnificent estate is located near the town of Angaston in South Australia’s Eden Valley in the Barossa region, a scenic one-hour drive from Adelaide. 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.

One of three immersive Yalumba experiences available is The Signature Tour, an in-depth experience beginning at the historic Yalumba Wine Room and taking in The Signature vineyard sites with spectacular views over the Barossa Valley, tasting barrel samples of the Cabernet and Shiraz components that will go into a future release of The Signature. Back at Yalumba, the experience continues with a private tasting of a pre-release sample of Signature, a current release Signature and a Museum release Signature before a tour through the Hill-Smith family’s private museum cellar and lunch prepared by a local chef, paired with Yalumba’s Rare and Fine collection in iconic dining space, Tank 11.

The inclusion of Yalumba now takes the UWEA collection to 22 members with representation in most of Australia’s renowned wine regions across five states. With over 100 published experiences on offer, the UWEA portfolio represents the very best in Australian wine tourism.
