The applications for the Best Of Wine Tourism Awards 2022 are extended until 26 July. The organisation decide to extend the application deadline owing to the ongoing pandemic context. Companies that develop enotourism activities in Porto and Douro and the "Vinhos Verdes" Wine Regions can apply to such an award.

In such unprecedented times, it is even more relevant for companies in the sector to participate in this kind of competitions, to try to bounce back more rapidly from the economic constraints.

This competition is aimed at wineries and tour operators of the Douro, Porto and Vinhos Verdes region, which have a relevant role regarding the development of wine tourism in this region. Companies that showcase excellence in customer service and that strive for innovation regarding the following categories: accommodation, Wine Restaurants, Architecture and Landscape, Art and Culture, Innovative Experiences in Enotourism, Enotourism Services and Sustainable practices of Enotourism, are eligible for the Best Of Wine Tourism Award.

The awardee of each competition category enters the international competition, where a global winner will be selected, by an international jury, consisted by representatives of all member cities/regions of this network: Adelaide-South Australia; Bilbao-Rioja; Bordeaux; Cape Town-Cape Winelands; Lausanne; Mainz-Rheinhessen; Mendoza; Porto; S. Francisco-Napa Valley; Valparaíso-Casablanca Valley; and Verona.

There will be a new edition, once again, of the People's Choice Award so that the general public can choose their preferred candidate. All documents should be sent to the email
