"The GWC Architecture & Landscapes Award came at the perfect time for Waterkloof. We opened our doors in November 2009, and the international exposure we received after the awards was announced helped to put us on the map with the right consumers. People who were interested in art & design, who also appreciated fine food & wine. Design Magazines from around the world made contact with us to feature our building, and we had a lot of people visiting the farm to view the building and our site for themselves. We managed to win this award twice, and more recently won the Best wine Tourism Restaurant Category. All of the exposure we received from our own press releases, and the general press releases has certainly helped to increase our wine sales, as well as patrons dining in our restaurant."
