To celebrate the momentous occasion, d’Arenberg staff threw a surprise brunch.

d’Arry was presented with a customised book filled with special messages and memories from people he has worked with during his 70+ years in the wine industry.

He also received an 18 litre bottle of d’Arry Original Shiraz Grenache, which he says is still his favourite d’Arenberg wine. He did promise us that he wouldn’t drink it all at once!
