Nominees

Earlier this year, Hawke’s Bay Tourism announced the search for a Legend – a visionary who has helped shape New Zealand’s Food and Wine Country into the amazing playground for foodies that it is today.

The talent recognised within the nomination process has run the gamut of artisan producers, chefs, restaurateurs, winemakers, farmers and growers – and included event specialists, innovators and entrepreneurs within the food and drink category.

With the incredible assistance from Team Cuisine and our judging panel, we proudly present to you the final Five Nominees. The inaugural Hawke’s Bay Legend will be announced at a special event as part of the 10th-ever F.A.W.C! Summer Series, this January.

Meet our 2021 Winner

Nominate your legend

Here at F.A.W.C! we are rightly proud of Hawke’s Bay’s legendary food and drink industries. But who are the visionaries who have helped shape New Zealand’s Food and Wine Country into the amazing playground for foodies that it is today?

From the boutique producers of the Wairoa District and the decadent dining of Napier City, to the produce powerhouse that is Hastings District and the prime farmlands of Central Hawke’s Bay, it’s the talented people behind the food and drink that we all enjoy who are leading the way.

Know a winemaker who revolutionised the industry? A food producer whose humble harvest speaks volumes? Or perhaps a chef who has broken new ground? We want to hear from you!
