Door – Welcome to Chateau Yaldara

The Barossa Valley wine region is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions. Located in South Australia, the Barossa Valley is about 56 km (35 miles) northeast of the city of Adelaide. Unlike most of Australia whose wine industry was heavily influenced by the British, the wine industry of the Barossa Valley was founded by German settlers fleeing persecution from the Prussian province of Silesia (in what is now Poland). Amongst the many wineries in Barossa Valley is Chateau Yaldara. 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 beautiful arch is the first ‘door’ welcoming visitors to Chateau Yaldara.

  1. The Chateau looks beautiful. Interesting that this one started with German settlers but then again there is also a lot of wine culture here in Germany so it shouldnt be surprising that some of the settlers used their known skills in this way
