The best of the best in wine tourism were announced with the fifth annual Klink Awards, presented by Wine Tourism South Africa, after more than 19, 879 votes by wine loving consumers and wine farm visitors! Ultimate wine and food experiences in the Cape Winelands were voted for which included unforgettable food, to wine-tastings with a twist, game-viewing or simply naturistic views of vineyards. A 14th award for the finalist that received the most overall votes from consumers – the SupaNova award – was also given.
An exciting new category introduced this year was “Touring” – touring companies were called upon (big and small) in order to uncover the brightest gems of destinations, experiences, wine and food that are distinctively wine tourism.
Says Monika Elias, founder of the Klink Awards: “Our wine farms are without a doubt and unquestionably at a world-class standard, so it’s a great honour that we can acknowledge the outstanding contribution that they’re making to attract tourists from all over the world to South Africa, and provide them with the unique experience that each one offers. The winners should feel incredibly proud as they certainly competed against some very stiff competitors. A heart felt congratulations to all the winners from us at Wine Tourism South Africa.”
Elias encourages wine enthusiasts to join the recently established KLINK CLUB, providing members access to special offers, vouchers, give aways and more.
