Your journey through Yalumba's iconic and premium wines begins in our Wine Room, where you will be greeted by one of our friendly Wine Ambassadors. They will host you throughout the day and share our stories and exceptional award winning wines.
Begin the progressive tasting experience with a glass of Yalumba The Virgilius, our flagship white wine and Australia’s benchmark Viognier.
With your glass of The Virgilius in hand, you will walk to our Family Tasting Room, learn about the family passions and taste our Rare & Fine Grenache, The Tri-Centenary.
Moving on through the stunning grounds, past the iconic Clocktower to the private Signature Cellar, partake in a comparative tasting of The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz, both current release and our future vintage straight from the barrel. The Signature encompasses everything our family stands for and the perfect representation of our history and ethos.
Having visited our labyrinth of former fermentation tanks, we will give you rare and privileged access into the family's personal wine museum, an impressive collection including some of Australia’s first wines and other significant wine labels from the Old World.
Make your way through the winery to the Cooperage, Australia’s only onsite winery Cooperage. Here you will learn how our barrels are made, whilst tasting our flagship Shiraz, The Octavius, named after the 100 litre octave barrels iconic to Yalumba.
Walking alongside the Horseshoe Vineyard, you will discover The Caley Hut. Steeped in history, the hut has a picturesque outlook of the very vineyard where some of the grapes for The Caley are sourced. Be guided through three vintages of The Caley Cabernet & Shiraz whilst enjoying an abundant local produce platter (or in cooler months a warm dish, by the roaring fire).
