D’Aria Vineyards is comprised of two historic farms, Doordekraal and Springfield. During 1698 the farm Doordekraal was first granted to the widow, Tryntje Verwey whose husband died shortly after they emigrated to the Cape with their three children. Tryntje’s passionate hard work and success in farming Doordekraal earned her the accolade "De Boerin" meaning "The Lady Farmer".   D’Aria  is designed to awaken and celebrate the senses – to see, to smell, to touch, to taste, to hear and to feel. Our food and wine represents the culmination of all the senses into a singular performance or "Aria".  D’Aria Winery forms part of Durbanville Hills and more specifically Tygerburg Hills, with an annual rainfall of some 480mm.  The cooling ocean breeze that prevails during the ripening period of the grapes makes this area famed for Sauvignon blanc and Merlot. The vines that we grow on the farm are mostly 10 years old but we do have blocks that are up to 36 years old, currently the vines that we grow are; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Sauvignon blanc, Semillon and Viognier. The Muse, the symbol for D’Aria, is a youthful, free-spirited androgynous figure wearing a flamboyant hat with feather and cape. Exuding a mystical charm, the Muse playing a flute and followed by a bird in flight, is merrily strolling along, following its heart.
