There is an incredible amount of history surrounding Chateau Yaldara and the picturesque estate. Though it is now a thriving winery, Chateau Yaldara was once a flax mill, built in the 1850’s. Left to ruins, it was purchased in 1947 by Hermann Thumm, who would go on to create Yaldara Estate. Today, the dedicated staff work tirelessly to continue Hermann’s legacy, from the landscaping team that takes pride in keeping the grounds pristine, to the winery team’s dedication to producing incredible wines, to the cellar door team who welcome all visitors and offer unique wine tastings.

The beautiful Lyndoch cellar door is open daily and offers a variety of experiences, including a guided walk through the beautiful historic buildings while being educated on the history of the magnificent chateau and estate. Otherwise, you can simply sit back and enjoy this beautiful parcel of paradise while you relax on the immaculate lawns or in the surrounding gardens with wine. Chateau Yaldara offers a number of accommodation options throughout the vineyards, plus beautiful spaces for functions. The team has created these spaces as blank canvases for you to hire out and transform into your dream event setting.

The winery team at Chateau Yaldara makes approximately sixty batches of wine per year from the impressive 72.6-hectare vineyard, specialising in a wide range from dry and sparkling white wines to red wines, sweet wines and of course, fortified wines. These batches are used within blends or bottled as single vineyard products. Over the years, a number of Chateau Yaldara wines have won various awards and accolades, most notably the 2015 Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir, which was voted the Best Sparkling Wine in Australia in 2019.

The cellar door team offers cellar-door-exclusive specials for all those who visit the gorgeous estate; however, the remainder of the cellar door range can be found for purchase on the website, and Chateau Yaldara even ships nation-wide. Additionally, Chateau Yaldara has recently launched a new wine club, which you can become a member of through the website or by calling the team directly. This wine club allows you to enjoy member-only offers, free shipping on all orders, discounted rates year-round and free tickets to Chateau Yaldara events.

Tasting Notes

2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
⇐ 2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The delicate beads enhance the citrus and white peach notes with highlights of strawberry blossom and lemon zest. Enjoy complex dough and biscuit richness on the palate, beautifully balanced with a clean acid line that refreshes the senses.



2016 Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir
⇐ 2016 HT Grand Reserve Cabernet Shiraz 

Saturated dark fruits, florals, Christmas spice and spiced marasca cherry teem from the glass. You will find a waft of liquorice blackstrap and vanilla-seeped tannins, while mocha and coffee bean accents linger.

2020 Lily Ponds Grenache
⇐ 2017 HT Grand Reserve Grenache

Lifted scents of hibiscus, rose water, red cherry steeped in syrup and crushed strawberries are displayed in this stunning grenache. The lasting impression is one of freshness and detail, rather than any sense of heaviness.

40 Year Old Tawny
⇐ 20 Year Old Tawny

The bouquet has fruit cake and sweet spices, while layers of roasted nuts and nutmeg, with floral hints and wellintegrated spirit add viscosity to the mouthfeel. The finish of the wine is sweet and intense with complex floral and toffee flavours.
