THeir pioneering founder, Thomas Hardy had a vision to “create wines that will be prized in the markets of the world”. Over 160 years later they’re proud to have realised this vision with their continually expanding family of wines.Thomas Hardy bought their Tintara Winery in McLaren Vale in 1876 with a vision for it to produce wines rich in character and quality. This vision and passion resulted in a lasting relationship between Hardys and McLaren Vale, growing the region’s fortunes, prosperity and reputation for producing some of the best Shiraz in the world. Tintara has been central to our winemaking ever since, and to this day they still use some of the winery’s original equipment; ensuring that every bottle of wine we produce is worthy of bearing the Hardy’s name.
Cellar Door is located in the main street of McLaren Vale and open to the public 7 days a week. Take part in a public tasting, visit their cellar door or book a masterclass to taste some of their most premium wines.
