Darling Wine Route

Restaurant

The wine co-operative that arose in 1948 was re-classified a private cellar in 1996. Recognition for the area's outstanding grapes brought further momentum when it was officially demarcated under the Wine of Origin scheme in 2003. The Darling area is on the West Coast some 80kms north of Cape Town. The winery receives fruit from 20 shareholders who produce grapes from 1 300ha spread between the coolness of the Darling hills, 10 kms from the Atlantic Ocean, and the flatter hinterland. Just 4% are irrigated vineyards – the rest are dry-land farmed bush vines. Darling is best known for Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc as well as old vine Chenin Blanc and Pinotage.
