Sandalford brings Triple Gold to the Swan Valley
A very successful year for Sandalford Wines has been recognised by the judges of the state tourism awards with the team collecting Gold across three major categories – Tourism Wineries, Breweries & Distilleries, Tourism Restaurant & Catering, and Chinese Tourism.
The 2018 Perth Airport Western Australian Tourism Awards were held at Crown on 10 November, and the event began with Sandalford Wines being inducted into the Hall of Fame in the Tourism Winery category after three years of consecutive Gold awards. The 2018 Gold award is the 11th time the winery has won this category.
CEO Grant Brinklow said the win was special as it meant Sandalford could now defend its current title as the nation’s best tourism winery in the upcoming Australian Tourism Awards in Launceston.
“We love a contest and we relish a win! Our success at these state tourism awards is testimony to a truly committed and dedicated long term team across all aspects of our business and their unwavering commitment to deliver a world class, premium brand wine experience to our tens of thousands of guests."
Sandalford were joined by other Swan Valley medallists on the podium, with Swan Valley Visitor Centre winning Visitor Information Centres and Entwined in the Valley taking out Gold in the Destination Marketing category.
Sandalford Wines CEO Grant Brinklow said the accolades received by Swan Valley reflected the maturity and sophistication of tourism attractions in the valley.
“Swan Valley understands its market and operators here often work collaboratively to market the destination. One example of this is the annual Wedding Expo which attracts thousands of people to the Valley.”
Sandalford’s tourism winery, which is located only 25 minutes’ drive from Perth’s Central Business District, is expecting to host more and more events since the recent launch of its all new bespoke event space, the $3 million Estate Room.
