Having just turned 35, Samuel Smith departs his hometown of Wareham, Dorset with his wife Mary and their children. The family set sails from Plymouth to Port Adelaide, arriving 11 days before Christmas.

After a short time in Adelaide, the family load their possessions into a dray and treck north to a small settlement called Angaston. Samuel works as a gardener for the town's eponymous Angas family and in 1849, plans his own vineyard with son, Sidney.

Five generations and 167 years later, Yalumba, Australia's most historic family owned winery has grown in size and stature, embodying all that has made the Australian wine success story the envy of winemakers.
