It’s been more than 160 years since a young and adventurous Thomas Hardy embarked on a journey that would one day see his name and wines celebrated across the world. It’s a legacy we continue to celebrate to this day.
Wines are not the product of one person, and Hardys Wines are no different, we are lucky to have some of the most talented and hard-working people bringing Hardys Wines to customers around the world - our family is made up of so many people.
The story of Hardys begins with the very man who gave us his name, Thomas Hardy. From the moment he arrived in Australia in 1850, his ingenuity, determination and hard work built a business that has lasted more than 160 years.
In 1878 Thomas Hardy transformed an old flour mill on the main street of McLaren Vale into The Hardys Tintara winery, and with his success the township of McLaren Vale began to prosper and grow. Today, we are proud to still call this winery our home.
