Chateau Yaldara is an Australian winery located near Lyndoch, South Australia in the historic Barossa Valley wine-growing region.[3][4]


The winery was founded by the Hermann Thumm in 1947 after he emigrated to Australia from Europe in 1946.[5] The site chosen for the winery was on the banks of the North Para River[6] at an old flour mill dating back to 1855. The winery was named "Yaldara" after the local Aboriginal word meaning "sparkling".[5]

The Seekers filmed the video for Turn, Turn, Turn at the winery in 1967.[7][8]

After over fifty years ownership, Hermann Thumm sold the winery in 1999 to the wine company McGuigan Wines.[5] In 2014, it was purchased by 1847, a wine company owned by Zhitai Wang of New South Wales and Kuifen Wang of Qingdao, in Shandong, China.[5]
