In 2010 Mark Darley commissioned a detailed viticultural survey of a south facing field at the family farm. The survey came back with a glowing report: perfect slopes in angle and aspect, great altitude for growing capricious Chardonnay and wonderful free draining soil. In 2011 the plunge was taken and the first All Angels vineyard planted with a mix of the classic varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Gris but also early fruiting Rondo. Such was the success that another vineyard of pure Chardonnay was planted in 2015 and a third (Holtwood) in 2020 bringing the total size to 6 ha, each with their own unique qualities, producing different wines in the same year.
