SANDALFORD Wines has taken home another award for its quality, service and customer satisfaction at the 2017 Australian Tourism Awards.
The Swan Valley winery took out gold in the tourism wineries, distilleries and breweries categories at the awards.
Chief executive Grant Brinklow said the accolade was all the sweeter as the milestone achievement had long been coveted.
“To all of us, it represents the realisation of Peter, Debra and Garry Prendiville’s vision that Sandalford would become the very best at what we do,” he said.
“While we have been a gold winner in this category at state level on 10 occasions previously, this was the first time we have been awarded the national prize.
“We feel ecstatic; having won bronze and silver at these awards the past |two years, to now be taking the gold trophy back to our winery is simply fantastic.”
Mr Brinklow said the company loved being part of Australia’s tourism industry and was proud of Sandalford’s heritage.
“There is an outstanding team at Sandalford who strive every day to deliver truly world class winery and wine tourism experiences,” he said.
