In 1876, our pioneering founder, Thomas Hardy purchased our Tintara winery in McLaren Vale, in order to expand his already successful winemaking business.
His vision and passion for winemaking meant that the Tintara name was soon synonymous with outstanding Australian winemaking, as was the region of McLaren Vale. Today our Tintara wines remain a testament to Thomas' quality winemaking, combining age-old methods with new-age techniques.

Winery Tasting Notes
This ancient varitety hails from Central Italy, where it can be traced back to the time of the Etrusacans.
Sangiovese has gradually spread around the world and finds itself at home in McLaren Vale. The limestone soils and mild maritime autumn of the region mean the vines ripen late in the season, producing a well-structured wine which develops supple texture as it matures in bottle.
Lively dark cherry & summer berry fruits are complemented by a savoury tannin structure, juicy fruit characters, leading to a long & textural finish.
