Darling Cellars, a large, grower-owned co-operative cellar, is the only producer of scale located in the centre of what used to be Swartland. It was de-regulated with its own DO in 2003. Within the South African wine-growing community the region is considered a well-guarded secret supplier for top South African estates looking to add fruit and structure to their wines. Located on the Atlantic seaboard, 50 km north of Cape Town, Darling Cellars vineyards are healthier than many in the Cape; with little rain and strong sea-breezes, there is no need to worry about rot here. Offering a wide range of grape varieties, 96% of grapes come from un-irrigated bush vines with an average age of 30 years which offer concentration from low yields.
