Challenge

In a market defined by consumer promiscuity, heritage wine brand, Hardy’s, were looking to drive long-term brand connection and loyalty.

Approach

A two year journey to establish Hardy’s as the clear No.1 Australian wine began with the creation of a new brand strategy based on creating and cementing the story of 6 generations of the Hardy’s family. This drove a new brand architecture, complete brand redesign and the launch of a number of new products including William Hardy – a premium sub brand which found a sweet spot marrying old world quality and new world flair.

Result

A strategy and activation plan that achieved brand growth against the backdrop of a declining category. No mean feat.
