Ormonde Private Cellar is owend by the Basson family and situated in the historic village of Darling. The molten rocks, forced from the earth to 300m above sea level, guard the Atlantic Ocean while banks of fog roll to the foot of the hills, blessing the vineyard with coolness and moisture. Not to be missed ...
The “Darling Ivory” orchid is exclusive to Contreberg. It is during spring time that vines blossom and Contrebreg wines are forged between the granite soils of Darling Hills and the cool Atlantic sea breeze. Enjoy a glass of award winning wine or tie the knot at our stunning Wedding Venue surrounded by the picturesque garden.
This family-inspired business is the brainchild of wine veteran Charles Withington and now so capably managed by Ida Opperman. The focus is on wines from Darling vineyards – and not only current vintages but some older wines and limited releases as well. There is also a small but important section of gems classified as “not Darling but dear to me” with a few exceptional items from producers with whom we have a personal connection.
Open to public from May 21!
