Chateau Yaldara winery was founded in 1947 by Hermann Thumm, a European who emigrated to Australia. The winery was named “Yaldara” after the local Aboriginal word meaning “sparkling”.


After over 50 years, Hermann Thumm sold the winery in 1999. Since 1999 it has been resold and is now owned by the 1847 Wines company lead by an Australian and a Chinese businessman.
