UPPER Reach Winery’s Renee Brown has a passion for wine and for ensuring visitors have a great day out in the Swan Valley.

She has worked at the Baskerville winery for six years and her excellence in cellar door service, knowledge and hospitality has earned her a place as one of four finalists in the ‘Cellar Door Person of the Year’ at the Australian Women in Wine Awards.

Proprietor Laura Pearse said they were delighted Ms Brown’s personal and professional development was being recognised.

“Renee has a passion for customer service,” Ms Pearse said.

“Her drive to find the wine to suit every visitor’s palate and their lifestyle is fantastic.

“Renee is always looking for ways we can improve things for customers; she offers a five-star wine experience.”

Ms Pearse said winery cellar doors played an invaluable role in helping visitors experience the perfect day in the Swan Valley.

When people visit, Renee recommends places to visit and experiences to enjoy, depending on their interests,” she said. “Over the years, Renee has lived and worked in the region, she has made it her mission to get out and visit all of the tourism businesses in the Swan Valley and has developed personal relationships with many of them.”

“We wish Renee every success in becoming Cellar Door Person of the Year.”

The awards ceremony will be live streamed on November 15 at Upper Reach Winery.
