Welcome to Darling


The long-established wineries offer a more relaxed tasting experience than many of their busier counterparts in the Winelands and the region is well known for its olives. In the town centre you'll find boutique outlets specialising in cheese, charcuterie and toffee, among other treats, and on the edge of town is a highly popular brewery that has played an integral part in Darling's culinary awakening.
