A Business Luncheon with Richard Dolan, Joint Managing Director of Bec Hardy Wines on The Next Generation of Hardy Family Winemakers.

A Business Luncheon with Richard Dolan, Joint Managing Director of Bec Hardy Wines on The Next Generation of Hardy Family Winemakers.

For more than 170 years, the Hardy family name has been synonymous with outstanding Australian wine, and Bec Hardy - the family’s first female vigneron is now carving out a legacy of her own.

Together with her husband Richard and daughter Matilda, Bec has firmly put down roots of her own in the heart of South Australia’s iconic McLaren Vale – just a short stroll from the vineyards planted by Thomas Hardy - Bec’s great-great-great grandfather, widely regarded as the father of the South Australian wine industry. 

Bestowing a modern-day twist on six generations of winemaking heritage, Bec’s wines are the result of careful selection and technique; letting nature guide the process, and only intervening when required.

After taking on the role of CEO at Wines by Geoff Hardy, he played an essential part in the company’s substantial growth and expansion into new domestic and international markets. During his time at Wines by Geoff Hardy he led the team to win the Optus My Business National Exporter of the Year 2017 and Winestate Magazine Wine Company of the Year 2012 and 2014 and Top 5 in 2014, 2018 and 2019.

In 2019, he joined his wife as Managing Director of Bec Hardy Wines.
