Dark Horse Vineyard was planted in 2000, in the Murrumbateman sub-region of Canberra. It was purchased by the Carpenter family in 2011 and converted to Biodynamic farming immediately.

At 620 meters elevation it is lower and therefore warmer than Lark Hill Vineyard, suiting later-ripening varieties. Relatively recent (35 million years ago) deposits of Granite define this area and these deep, fertile soils are the basis of the great Syrah/Shiraz producing vineyards in this region.

Dark Horse comprises Sangiovese, Viognier, Roussanne Marssanne and Syrah, with newer clones of Sangiovese and Syrah introduced from 2011 when the Carpenters took ownership.

Certified Organic & Biodynamic from 2011.
