Meet the maker
“Since 1912 the Osborn family have tended vineyards in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Today fourth generation family member, Chester, makes distinctive wines using traditional methods both in the vineyard and the winery.”
D’Arenberg have made a big mark on Australian wine having come from originally planting 9 acres of Shiraz to being one of the founding members of Australia’s First Families of Wine and a global name for Aussie wines. Their winemaking is surrounded in tradition with Chester Osborne continuing to use the basket pressing technique to create distinctive wines with a true sense of place.
Nowadays d’Arenberg is not only recognised for their wines but for their vineyard experience especially the d’Arenberg Cube. Described as being created to “entice and excite the senses” the Cube is a sensory and engaging experience paralleling the experience of enjoying their wines.
