Established in 1980 by leading viticulturists Geoff Hardy and Ian Leask. Since then, the Pertaringa vineyards in the foothills behind McLaren Vale have continued to produce some of the region’s finest wines. Pertaringa means ‘belonging to the hills.’
In 2012 and 2014, Winestate Magazine named Pertaringa 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.
