Abstract

It all started with a racehorse owner and teetotaler with a desire for a life on the land - a century later, d'Arenberg Vineyards is one of the most celebrated vineyards in Australia. Within the pages of this fascinating book, accomplished historian, researcher, and author Dr Fay Woodhouse examines how this vineyard has flourished from a humble grape grower to a national treasure. As you explore the history of the Australian wine industry, you'll trace the enchanting family history of the Osborns and discover how this devoted family created the d'Arenberg brand and label, while overcoming obstacles in the boom-and-bust nature of winemaking.
