Travellers rate Vergelegen for excellence

2012-07-06 08:08
Vergelegen, the historic Helderberg wine estate, has another accolade to add to its list of achievements, having been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site, offering advice and independent reviews. It has more than 50 million unique monthly visitors and carries over 60 million reviews.

The Certificate of Excellence is given to businesses that consistently earn top ratings from TripAdvisor travellers.

“Of course we’re tremendously pleased that visitors have rated us so highly and hope that the continued improvements we’re making to the Vergelegen experience encourage them to return,” says Vergelegen CEO Don Tooth.

Earlier this year the 300-year-old estate opened a new wine tasting centre and Stables Restaurant. The fine-dining Vergelegen Restaurant is currently being renovated and will re-open in November.

As well as winning numerous local and international awards for its wines, Vergelegen has also twice been named South Africa’s winner in the Great Wine Capitals Global Network Best of Wine Tourism Awards.
