Darren Arney

Adelaide Hills, South Australia

This is a family operation in the stunning area of Adelaide Hills that’s dedicated to capturing an incredible grape quality through sustainable viticulture, while the family as whole devote a lot of their time to charitable and social causes.

Darren’s vineyard is on a site that reflects the best aspects of the Northern Rhône. It’s got some great altitude for the area (380m) with fresh breezes livening up the area. As you might know, the Northern Rhône has a pretty famous Shiraz/Viognier blend… so we searched for the local equivalent. We source the lovely Shiraz and Viognier from Darren but he also grows some Sangiovese and Gruner Veltliner.

The family’s dedicated social responsibility in the local area covers a wide range of those in need. Darren, along with his wife and children dedicate a lot of their time to “those less fortunate, those who have suffered losses and setbacks, those who need an advocate to protect their livelihoods and wellbeing”. They truly are an inspiration to us all and we’re so grateful to have them as part of our team.
