About Yangarra Estate Vineyard
Yangarra Estate Vineyard Winery is a treasure nestled in the McLaren Vale wine region of South Australia. It holds a captivating history spanning over 75 years since its establishment by Bernard Smart in 1946. The winery owes its name to Smarts wife, Yangarra. Originally the estate was utilised for farming. Smart quickly recognized its exceptional potential for grape cultivation and planted the first vines in 1947.
