Owner description: Winestate Magazine Australian Winery of the Year 2012 & 2014. Winestate Magazine Australian Winemaker of the Year 2012. In 1980, Geoff Hardy left the then family company, Thomas Hardy & Sons, to make his own way in the Australian wine world. In 1987, he finally found his ideal site for the production of outstanding cool climate grapes in the Adelaide Hills. The vineyard became known as the K1 Vineyard as this unique, groundbreaking site was the first commercial planting of vines in the Kuitpo (pronounced 'ky-po') region. Today, like his great-great grandfather, Thomas Hardy, Geoff continues to push the boundaries of Australian viticulture in his single estate K1 by Geoff Hardy wines. He and his family also continue their work to make sure that the K1 Cellar Door maintains its reputation as one of Australia's leading cellar door experiences. The natural beauty of the K1 vineyard, together with the 'terrior' and dynamic viticulture by one of Australia's leading viticulturalists, results in ultra-premium, single estate wines. Our cellar door is open on weekends and public holidays and we invite you to stop by to relax and enjoy a glass of wine on the front deck overlooking the lake.

“A Truely amazing Wedding location and great wines too”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Upon travelling through the picture perfect Clarendon and Kangarilla you come across a winery that could be just Adelaide best secret...well now its out.
K1 Wines by Geoff Hardy is one of the most spectacular cellar doors / function venues. It is only 30min out of Adelaide and carries some of the regions best heritage wines that are beuatifully crafted and balanced. The entrance to the venue is a wow factor, but when your inside overlooking the lake sipping the lastest vintage or enjoying a function or wedding you are truly in a tranquil place. The staff are very professsional, highly knowledgable with a great country charm.
If i was having a wedding.........This venue needs to be inspected. It comfortably fits 80 - 100 cocktail and about 60 - 70 sit down. They can be contacted at

This is a lovely place to visit. The location is stunning, and would be a great place for a wedding. The wines are all very good and reasonably priced. Highly recommended!
