Yalumba Wine Lunch

Wednesday, 14 March 2018

Guest Speaker: Jane Ferrari

Since it was founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, Yalumba has blazed trails across the Australian winemaking industry. Every bottle is born from a steadfast commitment to careful crafting and a belief in nurturing the land and the environment in order to preserve a legacy for the next generation. The winery itself is a landmark property in the Barossa. As the only winery in the southern hemisphere to have its own cooperage, Yalumba enjoys the rare privilege of selecting and crafting its own oak into the very barrels that supply Yalumba’s signature character. Hand-in-hand with this artisanal approach to winemaking, Yalumba has been developing its own sustainable viticulture that extends from the vineyard to the table. In 2007, it became the first winery in the world to receive the Climate Protection Award from the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Over five generations, Yalumba’s reputation for excellence remains undimmed. From warming the spirits of Douglas Mawson’s Antarctica expedition on Christmas Day, 1929 with its new Four Crown ‘Port’, to championing new varieties like Viognier and Tempranillo for the contemporary Australian palate, its people are never afraid to break new ground. That passionate spirit is evident in every wine they make.
