OX HARDY | AUSTRALIA

“One of the legendary stories of Australian wine history has just been reborn. I suspect this country has not seen a new release of such pedigree,such depth of history and such sheer and effortless magnificence since the very launch of Hill of Grace itself in 1958.” Tyson Stelzer May 2019

WINE MAKER |  Andrew “Ox” Hardy

WINE MAKER | Andrew “Ox” Hardy

One of Australia’s most respected winemakers, Andrew is the great-great grandson of Thomas Hardy, the ‘Father of the South Australian Wine Industry’.
He has 36 years’ experience making wine in the Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale working chiefly at Petaluma and has also made wine in California, Oregon and Bordeaux. His winemaking style is supremely elegant, his philosophy minimalist, allowing the quality of the vineyard and its fruit to shine through.

Upper Tintara Vineyard & Winery

In 1871 when Thomas Hardy purchased the Upper Tintara vineyard in McLaren Vale, it marked the establishment of one of Australia’s greatest winemaking dynasties. Today the picturesque 141 hectare property is still owned by the Hardy family. While the majority is native protected scrub, approximately 45 hectares remain under vines, including the Ancestor Vine Shiraz, millennium Shiraz plantings, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, among others.
