Hardys Tintara has a long history in McLaren Vale. Thomas Hardy purchased the vines from The Tintara Vineyard Company in 1863 and then the Mortlock Flour Mill in 1878 where he immediately started converting the old mill into one of the regions best wine cellars.
The Hardys Tintara site, literally in the heart of McLaren Vale, is steeped in history, a history that’s been captured with a chic modern twist. Its location is within walking distance of accommodation, cafes, bars and all the allure of the McLaren Vale wine region.
Against the backdrop of the Mortlock Flour Mill the Courtyard provides an adaptable space for elegant ceremonies. It doesn’t matter which direction you have your ceremony in this space, there is a perfect backdrop in all directions.
The Courtyard can also double as a reception area under the stars or a clear roof marquee for up to 300 guests. A stunning setting to enjoy some of Australia’s finest wines whilst soaking in the history of the old stone buildings that surround you.
The lawns around the Moreton Bay Fig, provide a shaded and atmospheric option for your guests to enjoy whilst you duck down to the historic shiraz and cabernet sauvignon vines and explore the old buildings with your photographer.
But, the real show stopper is the Eilleen Hardy Room, the perfect space for a beautifully styled reception. Like the rest of the site, the Eileen Hardy Room features a blend of old and new. Gorgeous slate floors to dance the night away, exposed beams to hang beautiful lighting and extravagant floral displays and original white washed walls which provide a perfect backdrop. The space is suitable for a seated dinner for 110 guests or a cocktail function of up to 200. It comes with a full commercial kitchen, so your caterer of choice can prepare a delectable feast before you dance the night away.
Hardys elegant blend of old and new makes it an incredible option to explore ❤️️
