d'Arenberg Wines - Top 100 Vineyards

World’s Best Vineyards has unveiled the very best wine tourism destinations across the globe. The Top 100 vineyards are the best places to taste terrific wines and learn about winemaking and grape-growing. Many also offer superb views, restaurants and places to stay. Some are famous – the must-visit places in the world’s best-loved wine regions. Some, on the other hand, will inspire you to explore a new region.

Congratulations to d'Arenberg who have been included in the Top 100 World's Best Vineyards for 2021. Listed at number 31, d'Arenberg is one of only just three Australian vineyards included in the top 50. The idea to build the d'Arenberg Cube came to Chester Osborn in 2003. Inspired by the complexities and puzzles of winemaking, Chester created the idea of a cube-shaped building. Each of the five levels have been carefully designed to entice and excite the senses, including features such as a wine sensory room, a virtual fermenter, a 360degree video room, and many other tactile experiences.
