Founded in 1999, the Network has developed and introduced several projects, initiatives and programs with the objective of achieving excellence in tourism, business services and education within the global alliance of its renowned wine regions.
The ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ Awards is an annual International Competition “designed to reward the wineries in each member city and wine region that have distinguished themselves in terms of the excellence of their facilities in various categories from art and culture to sustainable wine tourism, and delivering quality experiences to the public. Since their inception, over 465 properties have received an award from over 3 100 nominees.”
They also offer grants “aimed at promoting excellence and innovativeness in the fields of wine tourism and marketing. These grants encourage young researchers who are usually enrolled in wine education programs and who have been nominated by a member city of the Network. Two Grants of 4.500€ are annually awarded to the most promising projects and the most compelling presentations and realizations.”For a comprehensive list of winners visit: http://www.greatwinecapitals.com Winners By Region
