Shining Rock is a family owned and operated Vineyard in Nairne in the Adelaide Hills.

Established in 2000 by Petaluma, the Arney family purchased the Shining Rock Vineyard in 2012 after scouring the Adelaide Hills for years looking for the perfect vineyard and a property to build a home for their family.

In selecting the site for the vineyard, Petaluma searched for a site that would reflect the home of Shiraz (Syrah) in the Northern Rhone in France. The vineyard has been planted on a predominately northeast sloping aspect at an elevation of 380 metres. There are multiple clones of Shiraz planted that have been accessed from some of the oldest (and best) cool climate vineyards in Australia, Along with Shiraz, Shining Rock Vineyard is planted to Viognier, Sangiovese and Gruner Velt Liner.

Peter Leske of Revenir in Lenswood was their original winemaker crafting the successful 2015 vintage wines. Since that time the vineyard has re-instated a connection with its initial establishment with wines now made at the Tapanappa (old Petaluma) winery in Picadilly.

Darren has a long history of involvment in agriculture and viticulture and comes from a long line of farming heritage. He attended Roseworthy Agricultural College in the 1980's studying Agricultural Science and spent most of his career in agronomy and viticulture and agribusiness management. Stints in banking, marketing and now advocacy for farmers, keeps him up to date with leading developments in sustainable viticulture and wine making.
