Sevenhill wins Cellar Door of the Year award
26 Oct 2018
Sevenhill Cellars was awarded the Cellar Door of the Year award at the 2018 Langton’s Clare Valley Wine Show on Friday, October 26.
Cellar door coordinator Adele Agars was thrilled to accept the award on behalf of Sevenhill’s cellar door team at a lunch and awards ceremony that celebrates the Clare Valley wine industry’s high achievers.
Sevenhill Cellars was one of three finalists in the Cellar Door of the Year category, which also included Grosset Wines and Shut the Gate Wines.
Judging of Clare Valley’s cellar doors was conducted by mystery shoppers contracted by Wine Tourism Australia. They visited 32 cellar doors over a six-week period in September and October this year.
Elements assessed included external and internal physical factors, services and facilities, staff interaction and the tasting experience. The top three finalists were distinguished by their friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable staff, who provided high standards of service even during busy periods.
Sevenhill Cellars’ staff were recognised for their efforts in building rapport, providing an informative tasting experience and initiating sales.
The award was sponsored by Clare Valley Enterprises.
