Yealands Estate Winery Earns 2016 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

Yealands Estate Winery (Yealands) has just been recognised with a 2016 TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence. Now in its sixth year, the achievement celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Certificate of Excellence recipients include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a quality customer experience.

 Peter Yealands, Founder of Yealands Wine Group, was delighted to receive this recognition for our Seaview winery, which offers complimentary wine tastings, a self-guided vineyard tour complete with downloadable Yealands Estate White Road Tour app, and audio-visual and interactive displays all about sustainable wine production.  “It’s fantastic to be recognised by the people who visit our winery, to know that they really get something out of the experience,” said Mr. Yealands.  “We’re very proud of our Seaview winery, which has been CarboNZerocertTM since inception.  We are continually working towards our goal to become a global leader in sustainable wine production and we want to share that vision in a fun and interactive way.  Next time you are passing please come our way again, the experience will be even better as we are not sitting still so there will be plenty more to see!”

 "With the Certificate of Excellence, TripAdvisor honours hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travellers”, said Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing, TripAdvisor. “This recognition helps travellers identify and book properties that regularly deliver great service. TripAdvisor is proud to play this integral role in helping travellers feel more confident in their booking decisions.”

 The Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
