The 2021 Great Wine Capitals Best of Wine Tourism Awards recently took place, with Lanzerac winning in the accommodation category. The Awards celebrates innovation in wine tourism throughout the nine most well-known wine regions in the world.

The annual competition recognises excellence in the following categories:

  • Accommodation
  • Wine Tourism Restaurants
  • Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices
  • Architecture & Landscape
  • Art & Culture
  • Innovative Wine Tourism Experiences
  • Wine Tourism Services

The judging process, led by Wesgro and Vinpro, included an in-depth reviewing process. The applications received were reviewed and scored based on the standard criteria. Seven expert judges conducted “ghost visits” to each property and presented their findings, with a winner being selected from each category.

Says Emile Langenhoven, General Manager at Lanzerac, “We are so honoured to not only win this award, but to fly the Stellenbosch flag at the International awards coming up in November. This is great recognition for the team’s constant efforts to improve”.
