Vidal

  • About

    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. He was 22 years old when he arrived in New Zealand from Spain in 1888. His first eleven years were spent in Wanganui, working for his uncle, pioneer winemaker Joseph Soler. He then moved to Hawke's Bay in 1905 when he purchased a small property in Hastings. Once the stables that occupied the site were converted into a cellar, Anthony set about planting some grapevines. It was from there he became one of New Zealand's early wine innovators. Today Winemaker Hugh Crichton continues the winemaking Legacy creating Trophy winning wines, with a passion for classic Hawke's Bay varieties. Visit Vidal Website.
