One hundred and sixty years after its inception in South Australia, the Hardys label can be found in more than 80 countries around the globe and is the biggest-selling Australian wine brand in the UK. In 2012 Hardys continued to raise its profile in the UK and other key markets with a combination of marketing, brand investment and key retailer support. In the UK its sponsorship of the popular BBC Good Food Show continued and the company stepped up its focus on Hardys’ premium tiers, including the launch of new label, William Hardy.
The brand also continued to support its customers by creating limited edition labels with several key customers.
Finally, August 2012 saw Hardys make its first entrance into the Ukrainian market.
