Darling Wines - Petaluma Gap Harvest 2018 - Full Size (69 of 91).jpg

Husband and wife team making site-driven wines from coastal vineyards in Northern California.

old world style | new world fruit

We employ traditional techniques and minimal handling of the grapes from vineyard to bottle in an attempt to produce wines of place and pleasure.

We do not and will never use any enzymes, harmful filtering products or other unhealthy or unethical additives.

Tom + Ashley Darling

We are East Coast natives who moved cross-country to pursue a dream. Our stories start in Boston and Orlando, then venture through Washington, DC and now continue in Napa, CA.

Amidst sales careers and entrepreneurial endeavors, we became drawn to the elemental lifestyle and requirement of presence when working side-by-side with Mother Nature that the world of wine cultivates.

By taking two steps back to take one step forward, Tom began harvest internships and cellar work coupled with wine science courses at the Napa Valley College. In the Fall of 2017 we made two barrels of Syrah, and thus, Darling Wines began.
