an extremely famous or notorious person, especially in a particular field. 

The search for a super-visionary that has helped to shape New Zealand’s Food and Wine Country into the amazing playground for foodies that it is today is on again, and we’d love to hear from you.

In 2021 Sir Graeme Avery (Sileni Estates) was crowned the inaugural legend for his lasting and momentous impact on the landscape of food tourism. It was with your help that Sir Graeme was nominated among over 90 inspirational individuals including Kim Thorp (marketing & branding consultant), Sam and Mary Orton (Orton’s catering), Jeremy Rameka (Pacifica restaurant) and Kate Radburnd (Radburnd Cellars) who have all made outstanding contributions to the Hawke’s Bay food and beverage story.

Now we’re all set to discover the 2022 stories of F.A.W.C! Hawke’s Bay Legends and your help is needed. Know a winemaker who has revolutionised the industry? A food producer whose humble harvest speaks volumes? Or perhaps a chef who has broken new ground?

You can let us know who you think deserves to be crowned the 2022 Hawke’s Bay Legend at fawc.co.nz/hawkesbaylegends

Nominations close July 11, 2021, with the first Hawke’s Bay Legend announced on the opening night of 2022 F.A.W.C! Summer Series this November. Previous nominees may be nominated again.

F.A.W.C! will run from November 4th – 13th, with chefs, winemakers, artisanal producers, craft distillers and tastemakers from across Hawke’s Bay and New Zealand coming together for the annual event. A HIGHLIGHT for your foodies’ calendar.
