Living Roots

Living Roots is an urban winery in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York and a not-so-urban winery in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia. Though Living Roots was founded in 2016, our legacy began six generations back with Thomas Hardy, Seb’s great-great-great grandfather.

Colleen grew up in Rochester, New York and the two met in McLaren Vale in 2014.  in 2016, they established Living Roots. That was the first year they split time between South Australia and New York, doing two harvests so they could make a wide range of wines, suiting the varieties and styles to the differing climates.
