The Darling Estate label was started by Guy and John Darling when they started making wine from their vineyard in 1990. Growing up in the King Valley, Guy recognised the potential for growing wine grapes and planted the vineyard in 1970 – the first in Whitfield. As passionate vignerons, growing great fruit was where it all started and that continues today with John’s daughters Grace and Sophie taking the lead in the vineyard and the winery.

The mission is to take care of the land on which we work and live, grow great fruit, make great wine and have a good time doing it.
