Two of Barossa’s wine tourism businesses have been awarded in the 2020 Great Wine Capitals Best of Wine Tourism Awards.

Yalumba Family Winemakers have been awarded for their excellence in Wine Tourism Services and Lanzerac Country Estate for their luxury accommodation property.

Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone said winners chosen across seven categories were selected from the 22 finalists. 

“The Best of Wine Tourism Awards winners reflect the world class experiences that South Australian wine regions provide for visitors,” said Minister Whetstone.

“The winners all offered a genuine, authentic wine tourism experience which leaves visitors engaged and excited about South Australia’s wine regions.

“With the awards now in it’s the fourth year, it’s wonderful to see so many wineries being recognised as providing outstanding and memorable wine tourism experiences.

“South Australia excels in producing premium wine and tourism experiences and has some of the oldest vines in the world.

“Wine tourism is a huge drawcard to South Australia with 37 per cent of international visitors heading to a winery during their stay in South Australia.”

The Best of Wine Tourism Awards are part of South Australia’s membership of the Great Wine Capitals Global Network, celebrating innovation and excellence in wine tourism.

The winners will now compete in their respective categories against nine other Great Wine Capitals at the international awards as part of the Great Wine Capitals Annual General Meeting in Bordeaux, France in November 2019.

We send our congratulations to the teams at Yalumba Family Winemakers and Lanzerac Country Estate, as well as all the finalists for their dedication to delivering exceptional experiences to all visitors to Barossa.
