Yalumba is now five generations in and remains one of Australia's most famous wineries. It was in 1852 that Samuel Smith purchased land in South Australia and the first wine came a year later. In another few years Samuel Smith starts donating his wines to local shows - a tradition which remains today.

The winery was passed through the family and continued to develop with Australia's taste and trends. Yalumba, with it's rapidly growing and quality offering was also becoming part of Australia's history. An example of this is that the Yalumba Four Crown "Port" was served "at the most remote Christmas party in the world" - a party in Antarctica in 1929. This paved way for Yalumba becoming a recognised sponsor in sporting and cultural events, and continuing to give back to its country.
