We are excited to announce the release of the Yalumba Rare & Fine Wine List now available in Prive249. Throughout Barossa and Coonawarra, pockets of carefully tended vines have been hand-selected to provide the fruit for Yalumba's very best and most sought-after wines. Crafted only when all the elements of viticulture and winemaking interact perfectly, these wines are the very best examples of the varieties and blends that have found a natural home in Australia over the past five generations. During Sofitel Wine Days guests can choose between a two or three course menu matched with the Yalumba Rare & Fine wine list.
