Bec Hardy Wines
Established in 2015, Bec Hardy Wines is a family-owned wine business based in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Bec is a 6th generation member of and the first female vigneron from one of Australia’s oldest wine families, the Hardys.
In 2020, Bec took over the ownership and running of the Pertaringa brand in McLaren Vale as part of her family’s succession planning. Established by her father Geoff Hardy in 1980, Pertaringa continues to be a family-owned and operated wine business under Bec and her husband Richard. The name Pertaringa means 'belonging to the hills' and originates from the local Kaurna indigenous language.
The Hardy name has been synonymous with South Australian wine since the 1850s and Bec Hardy continues that tradition, building on the experience and reputation of her predecessors.
2017 Pertaringa Lakeside Series - Chardonnay
Sourced from the premium South Australian regions of Limestone Coast and Adelaide Hills, this Chardonnay is made in a fresh, modern style with just a touch of oak. The nose offers subtle, elegant aromas of freshly picked green apples, as well as citrus notes of oranges and lemons. The palate is a well-balanced with tasty flavours of apples and lemons, complemented by crisp acidity on the refreshing palate. Try this wine with a chicken and spring vegetable risotto.
2018 Pertaringa Lakeside Series
- Cabernet Sauvignon
The nose displays beautifully complex notes of plums, blackberries and a hint of cassis. The palate is smooth and well-rounded with plenty of blackberries and plums, complemented by well-integrated tannins. This is the perfect wine for a lamb on the spit or any other meaty main course.

2021 Pertaringa Pinot Noir
2017 Pertaringa Traditional Series
- Over the Top Shiraz
The nose captures McLaren Vale in a glass, combining berry and cherry freshness with spicier elements and more than a hint of pepper. The palate is complex and dense with dark fruits, black pepper, cloves and licorice root, followed by powdery tannins and a beautifully long finish. Either way, its a big steak wine or a big-steak wine?
