In 1980, Geoff left the family company, Thomas Hardy & Sons, to make his own way in the Australian wine world. Today, Wines by Geoff Hardy is made up of three South Australian wineries founded by Geoff - Pertaringa in McLaren Vale, K1 by Geoff Hardy in the Adelaide Hills and Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy / GMH sourced from a variety of premium regions across South Australia.
In 1986, Geoff finally found the ideal site for producing outstanding cool climate grapes in the Adelaide Hills. This vineyard later became known as the K1 by Geoff Hardy vineyard as this unique site was the first commercial planting of vines in the Kuitpo region.
Today, the K1 wines are considered to be some of Australia’s finest premium, single estate wines. The beautifully situated cellar door overlooks the lake and vineyard, and has been recognised as one of Australia’s Top 10 Cellar Door Experiences by a leading wine industry publication.
In 2012 and 2014, Winestate Magazine named K1 and Wines by Geoff Hardy as its Australian Winery of the Year. Australia’s most prominent wine writer, James Halliday, has also rated Wines by Geoff Hardy as a 5 red star winery, a top rating only awarded to 10% of wineries in his Wine Companion.
