1847 Chateau Yaldara Wines

South Australia | Barossa Valley

James' Review

1847 Wines is wholly owned by Treasure Valley Wines Pty Ltd, which is Chinese-owned. The year is that when Barossa pioneer Johann Gramp planted his first vines in the region. There is in fact no other connection between Gramp and the business he established and 1847 Wines. It (1847 Wines) has 80ha of estate vineyards in the general vicinity of the original plantings by Gramp. A 1000-tonne winery was built for the '14 vintage, handling the core production, together with new varieties and blends. This is underpinned by the acquisition of Chateau Yaldara in '14, providing a major retail outlet and massively enhanced production facilities. Exports to Germany, Singapore, Taiwan and China.


At 1847 Yaldara Wines, every parcel is handled gently and individually to ensure the inherent potential of the fruit is realised. Best practice viticulture is adhered to ensure a legacy of sustainability and longevity for generations to come. Beginning in the vineyard, we use only the gentlest techniques in the pursuit of crafting Australia’s definitive wine styles. Our winemakers draw inspiration from the great terroirs of the world with the aim to produce wines that capture provenance in every bottle. Château Yaldara Our home is the iconic Château Yaldara, near the southern Barossa town of Lyndoch. Hermann Thumm founded Château Yaldara in 1947 after he migrated to Australia from Europe. The chateau was named ‘Yaldara’ after the local aboriginal word meaning ‘sparkling’. The site chosen for the winery was on the banks of the North Para River at a flax mill dating back to 1867. Today, we keep his vision alive with estate grown, hand-crafted wines, locally-produced artisan foods and a truly Barossan visitor experience. Château Yaldara’s beautiful riverside restaurant, offers relaxed all-day dining with a selection of dishes for any appetite.
