Established over 170 years ago, Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery. It remains fiercely independent through generational ownership by the Hill-Smith family.
With fifth generation proprietor Robert Hill-Smith at the helm, the family is committed to preserve not only the landscape in which the business operates but also to ensure the community and its people thrive and prosper for generations to come. Sixth generation Jessica Hill-Smith joined the family fold in 2019.
To own a vineyard upon the famous ‘terra rossa’ soil over limestone is the holy grail of all Cabernet Sauvignon purists. Since 1987, the Hill-Smith family has counted themselves among those fortunate enough to make an estate grown Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, naming it after red wine enthusiast and former Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies, who so generously praised Yalumba’s Special Vintage Galway Claret 1961 at an influential gathering in Adelaide in 1966.
The Menzies Vineyard is Yalumba’s distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon estate, crafting two exceptional single-site Cabernet Sauvignons in ‘The Menzies’ and ‘The Cigar.’
Experimentation, innovation, minimal intervention and small batch winemaking has resulted in Yalumba’s Coonawarra estate wines having an enviable reputation; being wines of longevity, elegance and structure.
