Hardy’s Wine Dinner at Holiday Inn Resort Phuket

Hardy’s Wine Dinner at Holiday Inn Resort PhuketSam’s Steak & Grill at Holiday Inn Resort Phuket was the location for a unique winner dinner on Tuesday night, 12th November 2013, organised by Ambrose wines & Spirits & Hardy’s Wines and featured some prized Southern Australian wines, along with some of the latest releases from Hardy’s new William Hardy range, each being unique, inspired, and bursting with character — such as The Riddle Sauvignon Blanc 2012,  William Hardy Chardonnay 2012, William Hardy Shiraz 2012, which were enjoyed with a specially designed and fabulous 5 course menu.

The event welcomed William ‘Bill’ Hardy, 5th generation and brand ambassador of Hardy’s Wine, who was on hand to share some the stories about the history of the Hardy’s winery, the 160th Anniversary of Hardy’s, being celebrated this year, and also the launch of his namesake “William Hardy’ range, launched in recognition of his 40 years in the wine business.

The Wines

Established in 1853 when Thomas Hardy established his family in South Australia on the banks of the River Torrens, Hardy’s is now a diverse winemaker with equal portion heritage and innovation, 160 years in the making. Vineyards span Australia from coast-to-coast, granting Head Winemaker William Hardy a treasure trove of crop he regularly transforms into award-winning wines. Below are the wines featured at this spectacular Wine Dinner event:
