PLUG PR started the week off with a delicious wine-pairing media lunch at the Conrad to launch the eponymous William Hardy range. Mr William (Bill) Hardy, fifth generation winemaker of the Hardy family, was in Hong Kong on the 20th May 2013 to personally unveil the brand’s new William Hardy collection, which features a new range of wines at the pinnacle of the Hardys core offering. The William Hardy range was named after Bill Hardy, the great-great grandson of founder Thomas Hardy to celebrate his 40th year with one of the world’s most famous wine brands, Hardys Wines. www.hardys.com.au
