Hot summer days, a long growing season and free-draining soils have helped Hawke’s Bay become one of the premier wine regions in New Zealand. Anthony Joseph Vidal, a young emigrant from Spain, was one of the first winemakers to appreciate the natural potential of the area. He established Vidal Estate in 1905 and his spirit of adventure coupled with a lifelong commitment to crafting classic, elegant wines remains an inspiration to this day. In 1979, New Zealand’s first winery restaurant – Vidal Estate Winery Restaurant - was opened at the original winery site. It was a milestone that has shaped the landscape of the New Zealand’s dining history. For over 30 years Vidal Estate Winery Restaurant has been an icon in Hawkes Bay, a place fondly thought of and enjoyed by locals and a uniquely Hawkes Bay dining experience for visitors. The winery is a member of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ) and BioGro certified, meaning it is accredited to process grapes grown using organic principles.
