Vidal Red Wines
In 1905, Anthony Joseph Vidal set out to produce his own red wine in Whanganui, but his plantings were unsuccessful. Frustrated by the unsuitable soil and climate, Anthony began a search for the perfect growing region to produce the high-quality continental style wines he favoured. He found it in Hawkes Bay and success followed, underpinned by his patient and natural approach to winemaking. More than 100 years later and the New Zealand wine industry is a very different place, yet we continue the same approach to producing unique terroir-driven red wines from outstanding sites in Hawkes Bay and Marlborough.
