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.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Hardys Wines acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.


Hardys Tintara welcomes groups by appointment with a number of tasting experiences available to book.
