Our visit to Hardy's was time well spent. The guys who served us were very friendly, helpful, and did not do the hard sell on us even though we joined the wine club and are having wine shipped home. They were genuine Aussie guys who served us which made the experience very enjoyable. The cellar door was full of history,... More

Being a Kiwi I know this wine as entry level however how wrong I was. The wines we tasted were wonderful. The two staff behind the counter were friendly and knowledgeable and generous with offering us tastings snd explaining about the different wines. We were lucky enough to try a few very special wines. We visited a number of wineries... More

Excellent customer service from start to finish. Great wine education provided during tasting. Absolutely beautifully upgraded grounds and viewing areas. Please do not pass this winery without popping in. Fantastic wine from entry level, but by no means inferior, right up to top of the range available to purchase. We bought 3 bottles which we took home in a very... More

We took a hire care from Adelaide cbd and visited this region but take note we went on a Tuesday so alot of eating places were closed. It was getting towards 2pm also so we were a bit anxious to get in somewhere but we wanted something nice. We visited the visitors centre and the food looked a bit heavy... More

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.
