Perfect location

The cellar door is in a perfect location and although the venue has been going through major changes it has not effected the attitude of the staff who are friendly at all times

Not only is it worthwhile to see the beautiful stone buildings and lovely gardens but here you can learn the history of wine making and that of the famous Hardy family and business. This is another winery to add onto the must visit list.

We were very impressed with this winery as soon as we walked in. For a big winery, the staff were so friendly and helpful. They set our kids up with cricket equipment to play on the lawn, whilst us adults tasted their amazing wines. Had to come away with a few bottles. Loved the big trees outside too.

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.
