Australia’s First Families of Wines: Feast with the Osborn Family of d’Arenberg

Our family has been tending vineyards in McLaren Vale since 1912. Today at d’Arenberg, fourth generation family member, Chester uses traditional methods both in the vineyard and the winery to create distinctive wines with equally distinctive names, like The Derelict Vineyard Grenache.

At a time when Grenache was considered unfashionable, we acquired many overgrown and abandoned vineyards. While slightly dishevelled, these old bush vines are back, producing very low yields of exceptional fruit. The Derelict Vineyard Grenache is simply delicious, a fine example of the rise in popularity of McLaren Vale Grenache.

This Grenache pairs beautifully with duck, which comes from our iconic d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant where it was created by award-winning husband and wife team, Pete and Jo Reschke.

On a Sunday night, everyone helps in the kitchen, then we sit together to eat at the table. Later, the ‘Head Chef’ of the Osborn household gets out of doing the dishes!
