Wines by Geoff Hardy is a 6th generation family-owned and -operated wine company made up of three South Australian wineries founded by Geoff and sourced from a variety of premium regions across South Australia - home to Australia's premium wine production and a great wine capital of the world. Since its origin in the 1980s, Wines by Geoff Hardy has had increasing success both domestically and internationally. In 2012 and 2014, Winestate Magazine named Wines by Geoff Hardy as its Australian Wine Company of the Year, making it the first small family-owned producer to win this award twice. The company was also included in the Top 5 in these prestigious awards in 2016. In addition, Australia’s most prominent wine writer, James Halliday, has again awarded the company his top 5 red star rating, a rating only given to 10% of Australian wineries.
