"The company will never sell the facility as it's the home of Hardy's."
Rumours were on the fizz around some parts of the wine business that Accolade was selling Hardy's Tintara to Warren Randall. Accolade is spending millions restoring and renovating the old heritage-listed winery in McLaren Vale's main street.
When DRINKSTER asked Accolade General Manager - Global Operations Keith Todd about this he shot back:
"I heard that too but it's totally untrue. It's quite funny I had to meet with Warren and Steve Pannell to get Steve to sign a beam in our new tasting room at Tintara. We're acknowledging our former winemakers. Some folks saw us and put two and two together and made six."
