Selwyn Wine and Food named South Islands best wine tourism service

19 November 2013

Selwyn Food and Wine Trail was recently named the best Wine Tourism Service in the South Island.

The annual Best of Wine Tourism Awards honour outstanding wine tourism businesses in the South Island, in awards run by the prestigious Great Wine Capitals (GWC) Global Network.

Selwyn Food and Wine Trail is a collection of artisan wine and food producers in Canterbury’s beautiful Selwyn district. Experiences range from unique and memorable wine tastings with the growers, to sampling fresh regional produce, and destination cafes and restaurants serving local food and fine wine.

Our regional winners now go on to compete against others from the network’s nine other cities and wine regions at the international awards in Napa Valley, California.

At the Wine and Food Festival in North Hagley Park on December 7, the regional winners and any international winners from Christchurch and the South Island will be presented with their awards.
