It was a night to remember at the 2022 Victorian Tourism Awards, with Grape Explorations Australia taking home Silver in the Tour and Transport Operators category for the second year in a row.
Judged by a panel of industry leaders appointed by the Victoria Tourism Industry Council, the Victorian Tourism Awards showcase the state’s leaders in tourism excellence and acknowledge outstanding innovation, industry professionalism and collaboration. And the event held at the stunning new venue, Centrepiece at Melbourne Park was nothing short of spectacular.
Grape Explorations Australia specialises in relaxed, casual & sophisticated group wine tours in the Mornington Peninsula & Yarra Valley. Only one hour from Melbourne, you can enjoy private full day tours in luxury Mercedes-Benz transport, from small groups all the way up to 29 people.
Founder of Grape Explorations Australia, Michael Aveson said "It was a team effort and we're truly humbled. I want to extend a massive thank-you to all of my team, colleagues, friends, business partners, wineries, venues, vticnews and of course the mayor of Melbourne, Sally Capp for contributing to this fabulous Tour and Transport Operator award for 2022.
"We're looking forward to the coming year and continuing to do what we love."
