AWARD-winning Sandalford Wines in Caversham is vying to add two more national awards to its trophy cabinet.

The winery has been named a finalist in the Tourism Restaurant and Restaurant in a Winery categories for the 2018 Savour Australia Restaurant and Catering Hostplus National Awards for Excellence.

Restaurant and Catering chief executive Juliana Payne said the association was delighted to recognise some of the country’s finest hospitality institutions.

“These operators have already been awarded honours at a state and territory level so all of the nominated finalists can say that they are each at the very top of their field,” she said.

“We are tremendously lucky in Australia to have so many absolute gems in the hospitality sector and the reason for this is always, of course, the dedication and passion of the owners and their hard-working staff.”

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on October 29 at Luna Park in Victoria.
