When I took my visitors to McLaren Vale, I always called into Hardy’s Winery, where they wanted to buy specific wines. Many years ago they used to have a little café in the cottage near the gate and a large display area for wine tasting in the building down below. But since then, the café has gone and the little...

For a big winery and big wine brand, Hardys in McLaren vale is a very good cellar door to visit. $5 per person cover charge included a cheese platter to share and a great range of excellent wines to taste. The HRB range was very special. Highly recommend this cellar door.

This is centrally located in the main street of McLaren Vale and close to many other shops. The wine is tasty and the staff friendly. The place is have construction work which I am sure will make it even more appealing.

This cellar door is in the middle of the town, so very easy to find. They have all the usual requisites for a comfortable wine tasting. The staff were lovely and the selection for tasting was good, but not as extensive as some. Worth a visit though.

After visiting The Almond Train, we stopped at Hardy's Winery so that we can buy our favourite wine. Inside there is a nice display of wines and information. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

The winery is easy to find along the main street through McLaren Vale and although arriving just before closing time the staff at the cellar door were still happy to tend to us. They took the time to make us feel like we had all day to taste their wines and never did we feel rushed. Set in an a... More

The place is historic and pleasant. The wines are good quality and reasonably priced. Tasting staff are friendly and professional. A good place to visit when in McLaren Vale but there are many places with similar vibe and atmosphere.

I had avoided this place for a while as I had mass produced wine in mind but the reality is much better in person. There is a large range of wines including some non traditionals. There is something for everyone. the building is lovely and the grounds are gorgeous.
