Yalumba Corporate

Who we are

Established in 1849 by migrant and English brewer Samuel Smith, Yalumba is one of the most respected names in the global wine industry. Six generations and 170 years later, Yalumba is now Australia’s oldest family owned winery with a rich and diverse portfolio of globally recognised brands.

The Yalumba Charter

With over 170 years of history, we are proudly Australia’s oldest family-owned wine company, continuously building on our successes, ensuring we have a thriving work community creating opportunities for all.

We remain committed to making the best wines possible, wines that are valued and respected by wine drinkers for their intrinsic quality born through heritage, provenance, individuality and a deep understanding of wine culture.

The Yalumba Charter provides a framework of how we can continue to flourish and work with each other and all of our key stakeholders, to help achieve our generational goals.


We are a team of energetic and dynamic wine business professionals, each of us proud of our contribution to the shared success of Australia’s oldest family owned wine company.

We are motivated by the pursuit of knowledge, innovation and improvement. Curiosity and continuous learning is encouraged and rewarded. We refuse to stay still. We lead – we don’t follow.

We are committed to service. Our customers are our valued partners and friends and we are driven to find ways to surprise and delight them. Loyalty is a treasured reward.

We believe respect is the bond that makes us successful as a team. We value our differences as much as our similarities and we demand and defend each other’s right to work in a safe environment. The only thing we are not prepared to tolerate is intolerance.

We uphold the values that come with Hill-Smith family ownership – integrity, respect, honesty and sincerity. We celebrate long-term thinking over short-term expediency, understanding that this is a rare gift in the contemporary wine business.

We enjoy the opportunity to work hard, to exercise our talents to the best of our ability. We do what we say we will do and seek excellence in everything.

We like winning, not just for the financial rewards that it brings to the company but also for the personal and professional satisfaction that comes with success.

And when we achieve our goals and objectives we celebrate, with enthusiasm, humility and energy. Fun is a ritual that nourishes our culture.

We are Yalumba, forever aspiring to be the world’s greatest wine business.

The Yalumba Sustainability Charter

Here at Yalumba, we have always adopted sustainable practices. Not because they are fashionable nor because they are a mandated business requirement, but simply because it is the right thing to do. The Yalumba Sustainability Charter is our commitment to a sustainable future.
  • Resilient Terroir

    We aim to not only pass on our natural assets to future generations in better condition than when they were inherited, but also to leave a legacy of great wine.

    Our sustainable winemaking program takes a holistic approach to viticulture to produce high-quality grapes. It creates a cultivated but balanced vineyard ecosystem that makes efficient use of the natural features of the land, stems environment decline, and regenerates resources.

  • Viable Planet

    Protecting the fundamental elements essential to life — land, air, water and energy, is paramount and something we take very seriously across the entire business.

    In a world with finite resources, we commit to treading lightly.

    We will preserve what we have, regenerate what we can, and not consume what we can’t replenish; and we will set an example for others through our people and our practices.

  • Prosperous Community

    Family and community has been the cornerstone of Yalumba since our beginnings in 1849. We believe that supporting our communities through sharing knowledge and resources is critical for prosperity. 

    We will share what we know through community and industry forums, and we will work with our communities – locally and globally – to create lasting benefits.

  • Thriving Workforce

    Our passion for wine, and also for business success, is not held by a few — it is a unified vision that drives the culture, performance and behaviours of our workforce. 

    We shall continue to focus on investing in development as a platform for future success: individual success, business success, and industry success. Our vision is to create leaders at all levels who infectiously spread their passion and knowledge for the business of wine.

  • Responsible Governance

    The Company’s financial expectations are clearly defined, and aligned with our aspiration to generate appropriate sustainable returns.

    We aspire to strike the right balance between financial imperatives and maintaining a wine focused business with family values.
