Franschhoek receives the Service Excellence Award
In an awards ceremony held on 18 March at the Golden Valley Casino in Worcester, the Franschhoek Wine Valley was presented the Service Excellence Award at the Cape Winelands District Municipality Mayoral Tourism Awards.
The Best Tourism-Related Event Award was presented to the ATKV-Oesfees at Solms-Delta, which stood out amongst the rest as a business entity hosting a special event, festival or other activity that attracts large crowds of visitors into the Cape Winelands.
In addition La Motte was presented with the Wine Tourism Destination of the Year Award. This award is bestowed upon a wine estate or distillery which offers a unique tourism experience.
‘We are humbled and honoured to receive the Service Excellence Award, and as a team who works hard at delivering on the criteria, we continue to keep Franschhoek and its offerings top of mind’, comments Franschhoek Wine Valley CEO Jenny Prinsloo. ‘We value the Cape Winelands Mayoral Award Programme, and would like to thank the Executive Mayor and the Cape Winelands District Municipality team for their continued support.’
The Franschhoek Lions Club fundraiser at Foliage
Last night we attended a fundraising dinner at Foliage (just across the street from us). Chef Chris Erasmus put on an incredible spread for The Franschhoek Lion’s Club, who held the evening in aid of a soup kitchen in Franschhoek that feeds 120 people twice a week – a very worthy cause.
