The Best of Wine Tourism Awards fills an important gap as there are no other international 3rd party independent body offering structured judging for Tourism globally that as South Africa, we can take part. Wine Tourism has become integral to the tourism industry of South Africa as a whole, and these awards allow a unique opportunity to showcase the best of South Africa on a global comparative stage. The awards have been a talking point in numerous meetings with old and new clients and guests. The prestige associated with the awards gains momentum year on year and, while there is room for improvement in terms of acknowledgement of the awards, this aspect has seen steady growth.
