Cool Climate, Elegant Wines

At Darlington Vineyard, we have 5000 vines of four varieties.

Our Unique Flavour

The dry east coast conditions and the hungry soil provide Darlington with its unique terroir.  Personal attention to each vine and low cropping rates ensure small berries and intense flavours in our Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Beautiful Location

Darlington Vineyard is situated on a 2 hectare site located a kilometre from the sheltered waters of Prosser Bay on Tasmania’s Freycinet coast.
The seaside town of Orford is a 1 hour and 15 minute drive north east of Hobart along the Tasman Highway.  The town sits under the Thumbs Mountains and on the shore of Prosser Bay.  The township is split by the Prosser River, which provides the region’s water resources.
Orford was first settled in 1825 as a way station for convicts.  The convicts were marched here before being sent to Darlington on Maria Island.  Remnants of this convict history remain. Orford has a sandstone quarry at Shelley Heights, which used convict labour to quarry stone used in many Melbourne buildings.
Visitors come to the Orford region for access to Maria Island, as well as great sheltered beaches, Wielangta State forest and good fishing.  Tourists and visitors pass through Orford on the their way to Swansea and to Freycinet and Douglas Apsley National Parks.
Orford has a population of 500 permanent residents, however, during the Tasmanian summer holidays, mid December to mid February the population increases three fold.  The majority of people are from Hobart and stay in shacks in the area.
