Alto Vino, the fine-dining Italian restaurant at J W Marriott Pune, hosted a beautifully curated wine dinner paired with “Wines by Geoff Hardy”, South Australia. The company’s CEO, Richard Dolan, presented the wines and shared the winery’s journey with guests at a multi-course dinner, featuring signature specialties prepared by Chef Christian Huber.

“Our winery was founded in 1980 by Geoff Hardy and its philosophy is inspired by his great-great-grandfather, the original Thomas Hardy, who planted grapes in South Australia in 1853 and is regarded as one of the founding fathers of the South Australian wine industry,” said Dolan. “Inspired by his pioneering experience, we continue to push the boundaries of Australian viticulture today, exploring the potential of a wide range of grape varieties and wine styles.”
