Waterford wins international award for excellence

Best in Wine Tourism Services Award

Waterford Wine Estate has come out on top when judged in the International Great Wine Capitals Competition for the Best in Wine Tourism Services Award. Waterford Estate, owned by Dimension Data’s Jeremy Ord and acclaimed wine maker and cellar master – Kevin Arnold, won the International award for Excellence at Cellar Door in 2006 and subsequently the national awards in 2010 and 2012.

What sets Waterford Estate apart? “We continually strive to create a truly unique and memorable experience for guests when they visit our winery,” says Kevin Arnold. “Through the creation of the wine and chocolate pairing, which we are best known for, and our two and a half hour wine drive into the vineyards to taste our wines off the soil where the grapes are grown, we have shaped an environment and an experience that many return to year after year.”

With over 22 000 visitors a year to the winery, Waterford Estate not only produces world-class wines but celebrates prosperity, life, wine, family and friends.

The announcement was made on October 27 in Mainz, Germany at a gala dinner attended by leading wine tourism practitioners from around the world. The event was hosted by the GWC, a network of the world’s leading wine-producing countries that shares international best practice in the name of advancing standards in wine tourism across the world.
