Vidal Estate Winery wins Beef & Lamb People’s Choice Award

11 July 2012

Vidal Estate Winery wins Beef & Lamb Excellence People’s Choice Award

The people have chosen – Vidal Estate Winery in Hastings has been named winner of the Hawkes Bay People’s Choice Award, recognising its excellence in beef and lamb cuisine.

Over 500 diners in Hawkes Bay have spent the past month scoring their beef or lamb dishes in their favourite Beef & Lamb Excellence Award restaurant in the region, with Vidal Estate Winery taking out top honours.

The People’s Choice Award ran during June, inviting diners who ordered a beef or lamb main in participating restaurants, to score their meal. Customers already knew they were dining in an award-winning restaurant, as Vidal Estate is a holder of the prestigious Beef & Lamb Excellence Award.

Jennie Dean, from Beef + Lamb New Zealand, organisers of the competition, says diners loved the competition.

“Not only were they eager to score their favourite beef or lamb dish very highly, some of the comments received were outstanding.

“One diner said their meal at Vidal Estate Winery was ‘Excellent, could not fault the meal, service or restaurant’,” says Dean.

The People’s Choice Award is running in a total of 16 regions around the country over the next few months. To participate, each restaurant must already hold the Beef and Lamb Excellence Award, which is assessed and awarded annually by culinary experts for excellence in beef and lamb cuisine.
