NSW Tourism Awards winner Restaurant and Winery Brewery Distillery

Cupitt’s Winery won both the Restaurant and Wineries, Breweries and Distilleries categories at the 2016 NSW Tourism Awards in November 2016. Cupitt’s was the only business to take home Gold awards in two categories on the night. As such we advanced to the 2016 QANTAS Australian Tourism Awards held at the Darwin Convention Centre on Friday 24th February 2017.

Unfortunately we didn’t win at the Qantas National Tourism Awards but we were honoured to be a finalist amongst the country’s finest tourism businesses. We congratulate Masons of Bendigo for winning Gold in the Restaurant category and Seppeltsfield in Barossa for winning Australia’s Best Winery. We hope to race again next year!

Cupitt’s Winery founder Rosie Cupitt says, “It is an honour to be selected to represent NSW at the national awards.  We are humbled to be listed as a finalists alongside such iconic tourism businesses such as Seppeltsfield, Pizzini Wines,  Josef Chromy Wines, and Masons of Bendigo.”  

Rosie also acknowledges the contribution of the team at Cupitt’s and said, “The committed team at Cupitt’s has worked hard to create an innovative food and wine offer in a relaxed environment. The addition of hand crafted beer and cheese to the business is really setting us apart from our competitors and we are very excited about these elements as they provide a well rounded tourism experience for our guests which is what these awards are all about”.

Mrs. Cupitt added, “We would also like to thank all of customers and people who visit our winery and enjoy our produce.  Our business would not be able to survive without you!”

Cupitt’s recognise that the awards submission process has helped identify areas of improvement in their business and they are looking forward to entering the awards again later in the year.
