Vidal sources the majority of its fruit from vineyards in Hawkes Bay, many located in the premium Gimblett Gravels sub-region.

Some fruit is also sourced from Marlborough. A dedicated viticultural team is employed to manage the vineyards and to provide a complete advisory service to the growers. The ability to select the right sites and develop and manage these vineyards to specific wine styles and quality goals is key to Vidal.

Vidal is dedicated to environmentally friendly winemaking and sustainable winegrowing practices. This mindset allows Vidal to contribute to New Zealand’s “clean, green” image and increase quality assurance from vineyard through to the finished wine.
