Win 1 of 10 Wine Tourism South Africa Handbooks



Which edition of the Wine Tourism South Africa handbook is being offered as a prize in this competition?

The first ten correct entries drawn after the closing date will each win a 2013 Edition of the Wine Tourism South Africa handbook valued at R99.00 each.

Wine Tourism is about the entire experience – people, places, wine, food and activities – and in South Africa, that experience is deep, rich and meaningful as well as being a whole lot of fun! The Wine Tourism Handbook is a guide to these types of experiences highlighting the farms, the dining and deli options, places to stay and things to do along each of the country’s beautiful wine routes.

This image-rich, full-colour, comprehensive guide to the farms, restaurants, accommodation venues and activities found in South Africa’s Winelands is one of Wine Tourism South Africa’s (WTSA) most prestigious products. It works in tandem with WTSA’s other exciting social media and online platforms and campaigns to drive interest in the varied wine tourism offerings of the country.

The 2013 edition boasts several key refinements to previous editions but retains its unique core by offering a comprehensive list of farms, complete with opening hours, contact details and easy-to-read maps as well as a number of carefully selected destinations for dining, staying and playing!

This year, the Gourmand Award-winning publication offers independent reviews of Winelands restaurants ranging from delis to five-star establishments as well as route-by-route reviews of boutique wineries (those that make less than 5 000 cases of wine a year) and it showcases the winners of the popular Klink Awards – launched by Wine Tourism South Africa in 2012. In addition, wine route information has been updated with editorial reflecting the inherent character, and images capturing the scenic beauty, of each region.

Restaurant Reviews

Wine Tourism South Africa has reviewed and rated the top cellar-door restaurants on all 25 wine routes featured in the 2013 Wine Tourism South Africa handbook. To cater for the whole spectrum of wine tourists, the guide encompasses a range of traditional cellar-door bistros, country kitchens and heritage, contemporary and global cuisine establishments, as well as informal, family and fine dining venues. Something for everyone.

Review Criteria

Wine Tourism South Africa’s reviewers take into account the entire eating-out experience – from the vineyard setting, views and wine farm ambience to the welcome, service, comfort and style of the venue. Review criteria also focus on the use of local Winelands produce, seasonal menus, food- and wine-tasting menus and authenticity of cuisine – as well as culinary technique, flavour, balance and presentation. Reviewers are paid by Wine Tourism South Africa and not by the restaurants themselves, nor do the restaurants know that they are being reviewed.

Here’s what others are saying about the 2013 edition of Wine Tourism South Africa Handbook:

“The book is brilliant! I have a guesthouse and it is the book my guests find the most useful when selecting which wineries to visit. I would say that for a visitor wanting to explore our wonderful winelands the Wine Tourism Handbook is the only book they need.

Well done on a great wine guide!”
