Wine Tasting at d'Arenberg

Since its inception in 1912, d'Arenberg has remained a distinguished family-run winery, nestled in the fertile lands of McLaren Vale, South Australia. Under the stewardship of the Osborn family, now in its fourth generation with Chester Osborn at the helm, d'Arenberg has become synonymous with wines that beautifully articulate the region's terroir. Embracing traditional winemaking methods such as basket pressing and foot treading, the winery ensures that each vineyard's unique character is vividly expressed in every bottle.

d'Arenberg's portfolio spans from everyday wines to iconic labels, with a commitment to organic and biodynamic farming practices across all estate-owned and leased vineyards. This dedication to sustainability not only enriches the soil and vines but also results in wines with lively tannin structures, nuanced soil characters, and fine minerality. The range includes varietals typical of the region, like Shiraz and Grenache, as well as unique offerings such as Cinsault and Nero d'Avola, reflecting both the traditional and innovative spirit of d'Arenberg.
