Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia

Award Success

It has been a week of non-stop celebration with three Ultimate Wineries receiving recognition at various prestigious award ceremonies.

Tasmania's finest tourism operators were recognised in the 2017 Tasmanian Tourism Awards announced in Hobart last week. Congratulations to Josef Chromy Wines, collecting the gold award in Tourism Wineries, Distilleries & Breweries.  Josef Chromy himself was also recognised, named this year's Tasmanian Tourism Champion - Tasmanian tourism industry's highest honor.

The Great Wine Capitals Best of Wine Tourism Awards celebrate innovation and excellence in wine tourism in ten great wine cities across the world and provides an opportunity for wineries in each region to gain exposure and recognition for their commitment to providing leading wine tourism experiences.  At a Gala Dinner in Chile as part of the Great Wine Capitals Annual General Meeting, Penfolds Magill Estate was selected by the International Best of Wine Tourism judging panel as a global leader in wine tourism.   

Closer to home, supported by the Government of South Australia, last Friday's South Australian Tourism Awards recognises and promotes excellence in South Australian tourism. We're delighted to report that St Hugo took home the award for Best New Tourism Business.  This award came hot on the heels of a Silver in the New Restaurant category at the Restaurant and Catering 2017 National Awards for Excellence.

More good news for St Hugo at The Advertiser 2017 Food Awards this week collecting not one but two honours. Congratulations to Head Chef Mark McNamara, named Chef of the Year and also to The Restaurant team for being awarded 4 forks - the highest rating possible for this award.
