Sandalford sets the national standard for cellar doors

The consistency of excellence at the Sandalford cellar door and restaurant in the Swan Valley has been rewarded with the West Australian wine producer winning gold in the category of Tourism Wineries, Distilleries and Breweries at the Australian Tourism Awards.


Sandalford chief executive officer Grant Brinklow said the accolade was all the sweeter as it was a milestone that the winery had been actively chasing. 

“To all of us, it represents the realisation of Peter, Debra and Garry Prendiville’s vision that Sandalford would become the very best at what we do," Brinklow said. "While we have been a gold winner in this category at state level on 10 occasions previously, this was the
first time we have been awarded the national prize. 

"We are feeling ecstatic; having won bronze and silver at these awards the past two years to now be taking the gold trophy back to our winery is simply fantastic.”

Brinklow said the company loved being a part of Australia’s tourism industry and was very proud of Sandalford’s history and heritage.

“There is an outstanding team at Sandalford who strive every day to deliver truly world class wine and wine tourism experiences to more than 160,000 visitors a year from around the globe," he said.

"The Swan Valley gives visitors a connection to wine in a memorable way which I feel is unique in the world, and we are delighted that our regional partner, Swan Valley Visitor Centre, was also recognised with gold status at these awards.”

Sandalford Estate Swan Valley offers several cellar door tasting experiences, multilingual winery tours on suspended walkways, al fresco dining under the vines, luxury cruises to and from the estate and world class concerts with international acts.
