In 2012 Château de Ferrand was included in the select club of Grand Crus Classés of Saint Emilion but its long history stretches back over 300 years.

Since its construction, started in 1702, it has only been in the ownership of two families, which may go some way to explain the preservation of this exquisite site, not only the Chateau itself but also the park around the property.

No surprise then that the property was awarded the Best Of Wine Tourism Award for Architecture in 2016.

 

It’s not easy to find Viñedos & Bodegas de Páganos. The estate is near the bottom of a hill between the villages of Laguardia and Páganos, leading you to believe that the owners, the Eguren family,  just want to be left alone to quietly go about their business.  And what a business it is!

The estate won an international ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ award for Architecture and Landscapes for its stunning ensemble of vineyards, winery and ageing cellars in the Alavesa subregion of Rioja.

Primo Estate in McLaren Vale has won the Architecture and Landscape category in South Australia’s inaugural Best of Wine Tourism Awards. The awards were held as part of Adelaide’s membership of the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.

The Monverde Wine Experience Hotel, hidden in the golden vineyards of the Green Wine Region, was the regional winner of the “Accommodation” category of the Best of Wine Tourism 2017 awards. Opened less than two years ago it has quickly become a worldwide reference in Wine Tourism.

Rosell Boher Lodge (http://www.rosellboherlodge.com/) has hit the nail on the head when it comes to taking advantage of Mendoza’s beautiful vineyard vistas and mesmerising sunsets. Each individual lodge has its own rooftop deck with sofas, sun-loungers, a wood-burning fireplace and a warm, bubbling jacuzzi. It’s a slice of wine country heaven.

 Château Feely is a one-stop shop for all things wine tourism: tasting, teaching, staying, touring - you name it, these people pull out all the stops to share their passion.

Hidden at the back of a row of tiny alleys lies the Landhotel Strubel-Roos with its ages old vinery at the side – a truly unique experience of hospitality in the heart of Rheinhessen.

You can’t judge quality purely by the numbers, but they do tell part of the story of how and why The Louise has made its mark in the Barossa.

The 5-star boutique luxury lodge has 40 staff for no more than 32 guests, has won an unprecedented nine successive Hall of Fame awards from Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine, and is one of only seven Australian properties affiliated with the prestigious global network Relais & Châteaux.

In the South African winelands, Villiera wine estate has become a pioneer in the realm of ethical and environmentally friendly viticulture, and was a worthy recipient of the 2016 Best Of Wine Tourism award for Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices.

Spottswoode is an historic, family-owned estate vineyard in the Napa Valley.  The estate was one of the first to commit to sustainable vineyard practices, introducing organic farming practices such as the use of cover crops, biodynamics and natural insect and weed management.  Spottswoode received a 'Best Of Wine Tourism' award for these practices from the Great Wine Capitals Global Network in 2016.
