The team at Dudley Wines are excited and amazed at their win in this year’s South Australian Tourism Awards. The award recognises wineries, distilleries and boutique breweries that offer a cellar door experience and create a significant contribution to tourism.

There was stiff competition this year, with some of SA’s biggest and well-known wineries and beverage businesses entering the category, which makes the winning of this award even more special for this small, family-run business.

Jeff Howard said, “We have been growing over such a short time, so we know we are doing something right! To be recognised as best in our state makes us so pleased and validates that we are heading in the right direction.”

Kasha said, “Thanks to our staff for the awesome job they are doing, and to the SA Tourism Awards for holding this important event for tourism in our State.”

Congratulations to all the other KI Tourism medal recipients (see The Islander, November 16) that helped the Howard family celebrate on the night.
