D'Aria Vineyards is comprised of two historic farms, Doordekraal and Springfield.
The Estate currently encompasses a restaurant (part of which dates back to 1702 - see the Koffieklip wall exposed in the bar area), guest cottages, a function venue and catering.
Future plans include a Wine Cellar and Boutique Hotel.
The Muse, the symbol for D'Aria, is a youthful, free-spirited androgynous figure wearing a flamboyant hat with feather and cape. Exuding a mystical charm, the Muse playing a flute and followed by a bird in flight, is merrily strolling along, following its heart.
