The Home of Hardys

A visit to Hardys Tintara is not just about tasting wine, but experiencing the rich history that goes into running a business over 160 years.

The Hardys Tintara winery, on the main street of McLaren Vale, has been at the heart and soul of the region from the very beginning. In 1878 Thomas Hardy transformed an old flour mill into one of the region’s best wine cellars, and with his success, McLaren Vale began to prosper and grow.

Today, we are proud to still be the home of Hardys, and be able to showcase the original winery, as well as combine time-honoured winemaking techniques with the best of today’s technology.

Structured Tastings

Hardys Tintara has a number of premium and structured tastings available for visitors who want to treat themselves and try the very best wines we have to offer. These include our Thomas Hardy and Eileen Hardy icon wines, exclusive back vintage Reynella Shiraz and Hardys Rare Fortified wines. Available every day. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.

These are some of Australia’s
