 About the Author 



Thomas was born in 1949, as the first of the 5th generation of the Hardy family, an Australian wine dynasty, founded by his Great-Great Grandfather, Thomas Hardy in 1850. Wine has always surged through the veins of Tom’s life path, which has taken him to live and work in many parts of the Globe, as a wine merchant, negociant, wine author and publisher. Tom lived in North America for several years. This was followed by four years as the owner-operator of the beautiful hotel restaurant “Chateau De Fleurac”, in the Cognac Region of France. As a wine author and publisher on three continents, Tom has had a life rich in experiences, showing with courage, determination and persistence your dreams and goals can become a reality. Tom has also had a long career as an international Sportsman, representing his country overseas many times in Sailing and Lacrosse where he also played in a ‘demonstration’ tournament at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games.

Tom is a skilled chef as well as a wine expert and can add an extra dimension to your seminar or convention by coordinating a wine and food experience to remember, as well as provide the keynote address.

Tom is planning a number of future publications including an autobiography, he has already begun, outlining his extraordinary French experiences.
