THE High Country has come out on top at the prestigious 2016 Victorian Tourism Awards.
Pizzini Wines won a Gold Award in the Tourism Wineries, Distilleries and Breweries category for the second consecutive year while Bright Brewery won silver in the same category.
Quality Hotel Wangaratta Gateway won silver in the Deluxe Accommodation category.
The winners were announced at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne.
Bright Brewery marketing manager James Davidson said the whole team was thrilled.
“We couldn’t be more delighted with the award, especially when standing alongside our friends from Pizzini Wines, who won Gold, putting Victoria’s High Country at the top of the list in this category, ahead of the Mornington Peninsula’s Crittenden Wine Centre and the Little Creatures Brewery in Geelong,” he said.
Bright Brewery celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2016 and started work on a production brewery facility on Churchill Avenue at Bright.
