Tasting

The Yalumba Wine Room was once Yalumba's brandy bond store and captures the spirit and heritage of our winery.

On a visit to our tasting room, our Yalumba Wine Room ambassadors will guide you through our wines and introduce you to our story. During the week you may even be able to see the cooperage in action and experience the fragrant sweet spice of our handmade barrels. The landscaped grounds framed by the Wine Room and the historic Clocktower are the perfect spot to explore before throwing a picnic rug down and enjoying the Barossa’s warm afternoon sun.

We offer an impressive variety of wine styles from a handful of unique growing regions of South Australia. Taste the Barossa with our old vine Shiraz and Grenache or explore the great Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Experience the heady delights of Viognier, Yalumba’s flagship white wine. Above all else, try something from our collection that you haven’t tasted before; who knows, you might just discover a new favourite.
