Our Story

170 years of South Australian wine making heritage

Established in 2015, 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.

In 2020, Bec took over the ownership and running of the Pertaringa brand in McLaren Vale as part of her family’s succession planning. Established by her father Geoff Hardy in 1980, Pertaringa continues to be a family-owned and -operated wine business under Bec and her husband Richard.

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.
