Darling Cellars, Stunning Vineyards, Flamingoes, and Lush Orchids

Nestled among the magnificent vineyards, exquisite flamingoes, and lush orchids, Darling Cellars Winery is located in the small town of Darling on the West Coast of South Africa. With immense determination, the winery produces and exports red, white, and rosé wines, accompanied by delicious sparkling wines.

In 1996, a new era started in the Darling region, giving rise to the privately-owned Darling Cellars. Currently, about 20 shareholders collectively cultivate grapes from approximately 1300 hectares of vineyards.

Land Characteristics of the West Coast of South Africa

The vines in the region are mostly bush vines, deeply rooted in the ground, retrieving water resources and nutrients from the soil’s depths. With almost 95% of the vineyard land unirrigated, the resulting wines express the terroir in which they are grown. At Darling Cellars, vine-growers focus on the production of wines made from Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz. Some other excellent varieties include Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinotage, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Some grape varieties from the 1970s, such as Malbec, Cinsault, Mouvedre, and Semillon, along with Nouvelle, Grenache, and Petit Verdot, give rise to unique wines.

Non-Stop Investment to Darling Cellars Winery

In the cellar, the winery owners focus on continuous investments to enhance their wine production quality. Most modern and innovative winemaking equipment has been installed in the cellar, such as stainless steel tanks with cooling apparatus, advanced presses, and berry off-loading conveyor systems. Dedicated rooms for bottling, barrel-aging, and fermentation have also been constructed.
