"Nothing, they say, succeeds like success. Few operations in Australia fit this dictum better than d'Arenberg, which has kept its 100-year-old heritage while moving into the 21st century with flair and elan. At last count the d'Arenberg vineyards, at various locations, have 24 varieties planted, as well as 120 growers in McLaren Vale. There is no question that its past, present and future revolve around its considerable portfolio of richly robed red wines, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache being the cornerstones. The quality of the wines is unimpeachable, the prices logical and fair." - James Halliday
