Family Affair

Yalumba has been recognised for its entrepreneurial success at the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. The South Australian wine company received the Family Business Award of Excellence at the awards night held in Sydney on 31 October.

“I see myself as a caretaker of a 170 year young winemaking tradition,” said fifth generation vigneron Robert Hill-Smith. “Out of respect for my forebears and all the loyal team players of the past, current and future who are part of our story, I’ll do my best to ensure we can pass on a quality fine wine group to the future generations.”
