Region Clare Valley

The Clare Valley

The Clare Valley is located two hours north of Adelaide in the Mount Lofty ranges. The region was settled by John Horrocks who encouraged his servant James Green to plant the first vines in 1842. Climate in the Clare Valley is continental with hot summers, cold winters and low rainfall that necessitates supplementary irrigation. Soils in the valley are predominantly red brown loams over shale, permitting excellent drainage. Many of the best vineyards are located at higher elevations of 400-500m on sites that take advantage of the cool breezes that funnel up the corrugation of hills from the south. The Clare Valley is renowned for its zesty fruit-pure Rieslings particularly from the sub-regions of Polish Hill and Watervale. The region also produces intense age-worthy sturdy reds from Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Winery HARDY'S

Hardy’s is a large wine producer with extensive vineyard resources and a long and distinguished history of winemaking in South Australia. Founded in 1853 by winemaking pioneer Thomas Hardy, the company has grown considerably in size and stature over the years gaining a solid reputation primarily for commercial wines. A complicated series of corporate take-overs and acquisitions has seen Hardy’s become part of the huge Accolade Wines group. The wine brand celebrated its 160th Anniversary in 2013, and fifth generation Hardy family member Bill Hardy remains an integral part of the business. Hardy’s flagship Eileen Hardy Shiraz reflects Hardy’s enduring and strong house winemaking ethos and exceptional vineyard resources.
