Weddings & Functions

With stunning views across vineyards and gardens, the Bec Hardy Cellar Door and Tipsy Hill Estate offer a perfect backdrop for your special day.

Our Venues

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. Today, Bec has two beautiful properties in this iconic wine region - the Bec Hardy Cellar Door and the spectacular Tipsy Hill Estate.

Bec Hardy Cellar Door


Located in the McLaren Vale foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges, the elevated location of the Bec Hardy Cellar Door allows sweeping views across the vineyards.

There are both inside and outdoor spaces available for weddings and functions including the newly renovated cask hall and the undercover deck where you and your guests can sip on sparkling while enjoying the view across the McLaren Vale wine region.

For weddings, the are option is for a ceremony at Tipsy Hill Estate followed by a reception at the Bec Hardy Cellar Door.

Capacity: This venue can cater for a maximum of 30 people for sit-down and cocktail.

Address: 327 Hunt Rd, McLaren Vale SA 5171

Tipsy Hill Estate


The Tipsy Hill garden is one of the most wellknown private gardens in South Australia and can accommodate intimate weddings, elopements and premium picnics for up to 20 people.

The 2.5 acre garden is set on a sandhill with sweeping 360 degree views across McLaren Vale and the Mount Lofty Ranges. The garden, surrounded by vineyards on all sides, is beautifully terraced with a real sense of the Mediterranean. Imaginative plantings and the bold use of colour, set against the cobalt blue skies of McLaren Vale, means the garden looks beautiful all year around, perfectly framing those 360 degree views. The garden offers a variety of seats, arches, pillars, walls, hedges and a wisteria arbor, providing a choice of spaces for your ceremony and photos.

For weddings, we offer the option for a ceremony at Tipsy Hill Estate followed by a reception at the Bec Hardy Cellar Door.

Capacity: This venue can cater for a maximum of 20 guests.

Address: 309 Blewitt Springs Road, Blewitt Springs SA 5171
