A Golden Harvest of Awards and Accolades

Darling Cellars
Small in stature but large in footprint, Darling Cellars has, over the years, built an enviable reputation in the local market, by consistently producing high quality wines with an integrity of origin, whilst also offering excellent value.

Actual sales are the market acknowledgement of this excellence and 2017 has seen Darling Cellars grow even more in terms of volume, placings and facings.

As good as any wine might be, with some 850 producers in all, and 8000 wines to choose from (Platter 2018), it is critically important that these wines be seen on the shelf, and nothing beats the 3rd party endorsement of a medal to make that happen.


A total of Two Trophies and 48 medals were awarded to 16 of our wines.

The biggest thank you must go to our Members for meticulously maintaining their vineyards and delivering grapes of such outstanding quality without which our Champion winemaking team could not weave their magic!
