Ormonde Vineyards

Darling Wine Route


Ormonde is owned by the Basson family, whose roots penetrate deep into the history of Darling. Being of a big family, grandfather Vernon Basson settled on a farm in nearby Philadelphia. Son Nico was an avid animal lover and returned to Darling in 1970 when he bought the farm to start dairy stud. With great perseverance, foresight and hard work, he also set about planting vineyards on his farm, long before the area became the permier wine producing area that it is today. Razvan Macici is its cellar master.
