History

With its first vintage in 1857, Hardys is one of Australia’s oldest wineries. Despite South Australia once being considered a far-removed place, Thomas Hardy was certain that here he could make ‘wine that will be prized in the markets of the world’. He helped forge the Australian wine industry and was a true pioneer, entrepreneur and visionary.

Today our winemakers continue to uphold the Hardys pioneering and visionary spirit, crafting quality wines for consumers to enjoy across the globe.
