Hardy's Tintara Winery

About Us

A visit to Hardys Tintara is not just about tasting wine but experiencing the rich history that goes into running one of Australia’s most awarded winery over 165 years.   Hardys Tintara offers beautiful heritage buildings, a working winery and Cellar Door for one of Australia’s most well-known wine brand.  Only 45 minutes’ drive from Adelaide, on the main street of McLaren Vale, it 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-honored winemaking techniques with the best of today’s technology.   Our Cellar Door, located in the first cottage on the property is bright, modern and features bespoke furniture offering our guests a seated wine tasting experience to remember.

Enjoy our signature experience, Hardys Hidden Secrets – if these walls could talk to discover the rich history of Hardys with an intimate guided tour and taste the five of our best wines matched with a local tasting plate or find out how the senses work together to influence your wine tasting experience with our Tasting in the Dark – a Wine Sensory Experience, hosted in our exclusive Fortified Cellar.
