About our Vineyard of Wines

Darlington Vineyard has 5000 vines of four varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc.

The annual yield is between 7 and 10 tonnes.

The trellising method used is vertical shoot positioning and the aim is to produce  2kg of fruit from each plant.  The rows face north east on a sloping block allowing the cool air to drain out the bottom of the vineyard and emolliate the effects of frost.  The vines are hand tended and picked ensuring the utmost care.

Our Vines

The vines at Darlington were planted during the early years of 1990’s.  There are now about 5000 vines of four varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.  These 20 year old vines are now mature and produce between 7 to 10 tonnes of fruit per year.

The aspect of the rows is north east on a sloping block, which allows the cool air to drain out the bottom of the vineyard and emolliate the effects of frost.  The sunny east coast summer ripens the fruit and picking is usually done during the month of April.

The vines are trellised using the vertical shoot positioning method with the aim to produce 2kg of fruit from each plant.
