Delightfully arranged and displayed, wines to taste and to buy in a typically charming Darling shoppe. Even on a Sunday. Assisted by a connoiseur of wine made it so much easier to make a choice. I would imagine that few people would leave the Darling Wine Shop emptyhanded.

Had a nice visit on a Sunday. They have a wide selection at very reasonable prices. The owners were super friendly and I really enjoyed my visit. Nice local spirits on offer too.

Charles provided a few tastings based on preferences, and is very knowledgeable about wines - not only from this area and South Africa, but around the globe. They are also able to ship wines. A wonderful stop, made even better with the cheese shop next door.

After our walk in and out from Ormonde we bumped into this little shop on our way out. Stopped and was greeted friendly and the lady was really knowledgeable of all her products on the shelves and after she asked us a few questions she put us on the taste that we were after in a wine. The shop is... More

Or you can just look through the wines to make your selection. Ideal if you do not have time to visit the local wineries, or if you want to be introduced to the local wine styles &... More

Love the blind tasting (with Tripod, the cutest three legged cat) and big reveal afterwards. Some excellent recommendations made and still being enjoyed at home. A MUST when in Darling.

Darling seems to have it all - wine, beer and good food! This little wine shop is a must visit in Darling. It specialises in the local wines - not only the wines that are made on the wine farms here, but also in the wines from other cellars that obtain their grapes in this region. And Charles, the proprietor... More
