Bec Hardy Wines is a family-owned wine business based in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Bec is a 6th generation member of and the first female vigneron from one of Australia’s oldest wine families, the Hardys.
The Hardy name has been synonymous with South Australian wine since the 1850s and Bec Hardy continues that tradition, building on the experience and reputation of her predecessors.
Bec’s family has been tending vineyards in the premium maritime region of McLaren Vale since her great-great-great grandfather, Thomas Hardy, arrived from the UK in 1850. Thomas is widely regarded as the father of the South Australian wine industry.
Today, Bec Hardy Wines, a certified member of Sustainable Winegrowing Australia, produces award-winning wines from its two estates in Blewitt Springs and the broader McLaren Vale region.
