Situated within the heart of Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, the Vidal Winery is an established and cherished institution. Founded in 1905 by pioneer Anthony Joseph Vidal, it's one of the earliest wineries to be established in the region. Not just content with being a slice of local history, Vidal Winery is famed for groundbreaking environmental practices, producing award-winning wines with sustainability and quality at the heart of their philosophy.
Vidal Winery occupies distinguished vineyards in the Hawkes Bay region--Gimblett Gravels and Te Awanga. These provide the perfect soil conditions for the distinctly bold, vibrant wines their reputation is built on. But it’s not just about the terroir, the winery’s dedicated viticulture team plays a crucial role ensuring each grape is nurtured to perfection, before being handpicked at the peak of ripeness.
Visitors will find much to admire about the winery’s cellar door; a devoted tasting room boasting an extensive range of wines to explore. From the lush aromatics of their Reserve Viognier, to the rich complexity of Legacy Chardonnay, there's a bottle to suit every palate.
In a bid to take wine tasting to a whole new level, Vidal Winery's unique Soler system is a true spectacle. This traditional Spanish method of winemaking allows patrons to watch the winemaking process unfold, while savouring the incomparable taste of wine directly from the barrel!
Aside from an unparalleled blend of viticultural excellence, stunning views and diverse tasting experience. The winery also offers a gastronomic delight in the form of their onsite restaurant. Guests can satiate their palettes with a selection of seasonal dishes, all perfectly paired with Vidal’s exemplary wines.
