Overview

Winestate Magazine Australian Winery of the Year 2012 & 2014. Winestate Magazine Australian Winemaker of the Year 2012. In 1980, Geoff Hardy left the then family company, Thomas Hardy & Sons, to make his own way in the Australian wine world. In 1987, he finally found his ideal site for the production of outstanding cool climate grapes in the Adelaide Hills. The vineyard became known as the K1 Vineyard as this unique, groundbreaking site was the first commercial planting of vines in the Kuitpo (pronounced 'ky-po') region. Today, like his great-great grandfather, Thomas Hardy, Geoff continues to push the boundaries of Australian viticulture in his single estate K1 by Geoff Hardy wines. He and his family also continue their work to make sure that the K1 Cellar Door maintains its reputation as one of Australia's leading cellar door experiences. The natural beauty of the K1 vineyard, together with the 'terrior' and dynamic viticulture by one of Australia's leading viticulturalists, results in ultra-premium, single estate wines. Our cellar door is open on weekends and public holidays and we invite you to stop by to relax and enjoy a glass of wine on the front deck overlooking the lake.

From memory, i think they had a venue upstairs which is used for weddings. If you're looking for a good winery for a wedding venue checkout, Longview at Macclesfield. Its excellent. Much better than K1.
