Yalumba has been making premium red wine under the Galway name since the 1940s. Galway was named in honour of L.T. Col. Sir Henry L. Galway, K.C.M.G., D.S.O, who was governor of South Australia from 1914 - 1920. He was a keen wine man with a good palate and a regular visitor to Yalumba in Angaston. The success of the early Galway reds became the base on which all Yalumba reds were developed. Today, Galway is still made to a traditional style with rich colour, distinctive spicy fruit and perfectly integrated oak.
