About
A visit to Hardys Tintara is not just about tasting wine, but experiencing the rich history that goes into running a business over 170 years. On the main street of McLaren Vale, Hardys has been at the heart and soul of the region from the very beginning. 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. At Hardys Tintara Cellar Door you can enjoy a range of wines that showcase the best McLaren Vale has to offer with a seated wine tasting experience, along with a selection of experiences for you to discover the rich history of Thomas Hardy and his wine empire with an intimate guided Hardys Hidden Secrets talk tour or to explore your wine tasting senses with an interactive Tasting in the Dark experience to explore your senses and understand how they work together to influence the taste of wine, and what happens when we remove the sense of sight.

Excellent service attitude. We arrived very near closing hour, staff obliged to allow the wine tasting session, which was informative and warm. Good quality wine of course.

Well established, well set out and maintained historical winery and grounds. Very picturesque, especially on a fine sunny day. The staff were welcoming and friendly and pleased to talk about the various wines for tasting.
A separate building provides artisans with work spaces and a gallery to show and sell their works-definitely worth visiting too.

We arrived at Hardy's close to the end of the day but were still made to feel welcome. We had a quick tasting and chose a very good red. The staff were relaxed and informative. We hope to return and spend more time learning about wines from this great name.

The cellar door was magnificent and the grounds are the best in McLaren Vale. The shady fig trees and open grounds are perfect for a picnic or just relaxing with a bit of lunch.

Enjoyed our wine tasting experience and shared platter of food. Staff probably not quite as attentive as other wineries that we had visited but then Hardys wine sells itself!

Attractive winery but the tasting experience was pretty ordinary as were the wines. Probably need to visit this one early in the day when the staff might be a bit more enthusiastic.

Was only able to make a very short visit, however what id did see was a stunning place with a great layout and very picturesque. As you walk around and can see instantly it is well kept and clean and tidy, the staff are lovely. I went to collect an order but will definitely be going back for a full visit and wine tasting, excellent location amd well worth a visit for the wine lovers.

Our small group undertook the Icon Wine tasting at Hardys recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. We would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the world of wine. Marty was a wonderful host and gave us an insight into the history of the Winery and the region.

We chose this winery because we knew the name and thought it would be a good first stop. It certainly was and we loved visiting the older building and reading the history of Hardy wines in this area. We were also intrigued with the family history of this winery. We didn't really need to but decided while we were here to do a tasting so I tried a Fiano which I believe is an Italian blend and thought it was a good white wine.
