Australia's First Families of Wine
Richard Allen and Kimbal Baker

'Australia's First Families of Wine' celebrates eleven of Australia's most iconic and important wine families and the vineyards and businesses they have built. With more than 5,000 hectares under vine, the families operate in sixteen wine-growing regions around Australia. They make many of Australia's most distinctive wines and all are household names- Brown Brothers, Tahbilk, Campbells, Yalumba, Henschke, d'Arenberg, Jim Barry, Taylors, McWilliam's, Tyrell's and Howard Park. Australia's First Families of Wine showcases the colourful histories of these spectacular vineyards and historic buildings, exploring the wine industry's transformation into an export-earning powerhouse and detailing the challenges of taking old family businesses into the 21st century.
