The nominees for the Swiss Wine Tourism Award/Best of Wine Tourism, 2021 edition, are known!
More than 40 applications from all over Switzerland have been registered by the organizers. The jury, chaired by Robert Cramer, is looking forward to choosing the winners of the various categories from among the 15 nominees on September 3.
Given the particular period of the last few months, the organizers are pleased to have received over 40 applications. “After postponing our events twice, evolving in a context of uncertainty and inactivity, the promotion of the events and the call for applications was not obvious”, comments Florent Hermann, co-organizer. “We are therefore very pleased with this figure, especially since many wine tourism providers are considering submitting an application for the 2022 edition, after a more concrete restart of their activities this year. “To be eligible for the competition, the wine tourism offer must have been in existence for at least one year.
