Hardys wines Reaches a Century

Hardys wines, Australia’s most powerful wine brand, is celebrating a significant milestone this week announcing distribution in over 100 countries around the world, with recent additions including South Africa and Mexico.

Already the biggest selling Australian wine brand in the United Kingdom, Hardys is now available in 54 per cent of all wine drinking countries globally.

With over nine million cases of Hardys enjoyed around the world each year, Hardys has produced some of Australia’s greatest wines— including the iconic Eileen Hardy Shiraz. Fifth generation Hardys family member, William ‘Bill’ Hardy, said this is an overwhelming result for his family.

“This is a great achievement and outstanding endorsement of the hard work and talent of the Hardys team.”

“Hardys has built a tradition of great endeavour in winemaking. My great, great grandfather, Thomas Hardy had a vision to produce wines which would be prized in the markets of the world by showing outstanding innovation and resourcefulness, directed at making wines of quality and character. “ “A succession of some of Australia's greatest winemakers have followed in his footsteps and today we continue the great Australian blending tradition between regions and varieties, to make great wines of character and complexity.”

“We have recently undergone some packaging upgrades and launched a number of new products, so it’s been a busy 12 months. Reaching over 100 countries is testament to my great, great grandfather’s vision and I am sure he would be very proud to reach a century,” Hardy continued.

Recently celebrating 160 years of winemaking in 2013, Hardys is positioned to maintain its momentum with the recent launch of the William Hardy range of wines, crafted to honour William Hardy himself. The range includes a Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

In November 2013, it was announced that Hardys signed a three year partnership with Cricket Australia.

Hardys wines are distributed in New Zealand by Constellation and a full list of available stock can be found below.
