Double Delight For Voyager Estate

Voyager Estate was delighted to win two awards at the 2012 Margaret River Chamber of Commerce & Industry Business Awards held at the Margaret River Cultural Centre on Thursday, September 27th.

The news article “Businesses’ night to shine” has complete information on this story. It says the following: “Competing against three other wineries, the Estate won the Margaret River Gourmet Escape – Winery of Excellence Award. It then competed with the nine other excellence award finalists to win the major MRCCI Margaret River Business of the Year Award 2012, for 10 + employees.”

The winners of other major awards were Home Timber and Hardware (Rotary Club of Margaret River Corporate Citizen of the Year Award 2012), Margaret River Hemp Company (Augusta Margaret River Shire Council – 2012 Margaret River Business of the Year Award, for fewer than 10 employees) and The Candy Cow (GWN7 People’s Choice Margaret River Business of the Year for 2012).

Excellence awards were won by Gnarabar, The Berry Farm, Settlers Tavern, Caves Mechanical Service and Margaret River 4WD Centre, Llewellin’s Guest House, Priceline Pharmacy Margaret River, Sports Power Margaret River, House of Cards and Intermingle- Margaret River 1st, with special commendations for the Margaret River Guide and Sea Gardens Café Restaurant.

Speaking of the achievement, Adam Elton, wineroom manager at Voyager Estate, said “I think it’s good to get local recognition for what we’re trying to achieve as one of the most inspiring wineries in the region.”

Janine Carter, wine manager at Voyager Estate, believes the awards are “all about the customer service” offered by the winery. She talked about the new space opened by Voyager in June, which offers various different levels of customer service.

Elton noted “We still have the common counter experience, but we’re also offering a few different levels of wine experience. We’re not just assuming everyone wants the same experience.”

One level, according to Elton, allows clients to sit at a table with their meals while using iPads installed with a Voyager-based wine-guide application, which has information on food pairings as well as the winemaker’s notes.

“It allows people to move at their own pace,” he said.

Moreover, there are private educational sessions held in a purposefully-built room known as “Michael’s Room”, named after the late founder of Voyager Estate, Michael Wright.

About Benji

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
