WA Tourism Awards Finalists Announced!

Shut the front door!  Finalists for the 2018 Western Australian Tourism Awards have been announced, and Wine for Dudes are stoked to sit amongst an array of Western Australia's best tourism businesses, representing the Margaret River region as finalists in the Tour and Transport Operators category!

With anticipation running high, Tourism Council WA and Tourism Western Australia announced the finalists in front of more than 180 businesses from throughout WA, who made their way to Little Creatures Brewing Co in Fremantle for the event ...including our very own chief dude, Johnno!  They wined and dined on Little Creatures beers and canapes, along with delicious wines from Margaret River's very own Happs Winery!

The six finalists in the running to be the best Tour and Transport Operator in Western Australia are Coral Coast Helicopter Services (Carnarvon),  Kimberley Quest (Broome), Mandurah Cruises (Mandurah), Pearl Luggers by Willie Creek Pearls (Broome), fellow Margaret River tour operator, Harvest Tours, and of course our bunch at Wine for Dudes!

Listen to that CHEER - Thanks legends!!


With a never-say-die passion for Margaret River wine and the region as a whole, legendary tour guides with viticulture qualifications, our unique hands-on wine blending experience, a drool-worthy lunch at Rustico at Hay Shed Hill, flexible itineraries designed to create an impressive impression to Margaret River tourists, a genuine desire to show our visitors the BEST time, and fresh energy pumped into every one of our not-so-standard tours, we 100% believe that we have the very BEST wine tour; ...so we obviously want to win, but if not, we're stoked to have made it this far, and wish the rest of the finalists all the best!

Congrats to all the Finalists from the Margaret River Region!
