The Louise luxury vineyard retreat was recently named as the winner of the Luxury Accommodation category at the 2007 South Australian Tourism Awards Gala Dinner at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

The Louise will go forward as the South Australian entrant to contest this prestigious category at the national level in February 2008.

The award was presented by SA Tourism Minister, Hon. Jane Lomax-Smith and received by The Louise owner Jim Carreker and general manager Penny Rafferty. In his acceptance to the audience of more than 500 industry professionals, Mr. Carreker noted that this award is especially a recognition of the accomplishments of Ms. Rafferty and the executive chef of co-located Appellation restaurant, Mark McNamara, and their combined teams of more than 40 employees. The sustained high level of guest experience at The Louise is testament to the dedication and consistent effort of the propertys employees.

Overall in the 2007 awards, Barossa-based tourism businesses were named as 6 of the 26 category winners. Observing this significant regional achievement by the Barossa, Ms. Rafferty said, This award confirms the growing level of excellence of regional tourism offerings in South Australia. It is our understanding that this is the first time in the 25 years of SA Tourism Awards that a property outside the Adelaide CBD has won the Luxury Accommodation category. We are particularly pleased to have been recognized in this manner.

The Louise is a luxury vineyard retreat surrounded by hundreds of acres of vines overlooking the world renowned Barossa Valley. Just fifteen suites offer luxurious inspired design with private terraces, soft contemporary furnishings and spacious ensuites. Acclaimed onsite restaurant, Appellation, is widely regarded as one of Australias finest regional dining experiences.
