Wellington Quest for the Best Top Ten 2015

Tuesday, 04 August 2015 13:32 Published in News & Events

This year, the sixth annual Mutual & Federal Agri Wellington Wine Route “Quest for the Best” was celebrated with an awards luncheon at the prestigious Au’ de Hex Boutique Hotel in Wellington on Thursday 30 July.

One would think that historic town like Paarl and its neighbour Wellington should be a hot spot for tourism. Well, that is the general believe. We've all seen the tourists walking up and down Main Road, taking photos of the Strooidakkerk and other historical places, but the downside (and quite a surprise!) is that tourism is not actually that much alive and well in Paarl or Wellington. The difficult task of putting our beloved town and Wellington on the tourism map is in hands of David Frandsen, the 'new' Chief Executive Officer at Drakenstein Tourism Authority (Paarl & Wellington Tourism), or in short, the DLTA.

Wellington wins at the Absa Cape Epic

Wednesday, 22 April 2015 15:47 Published in News & Events

There are many winners at the Absa Cape Epic, and not all of them on bicycles. 

Each year the race presents a Best Town Spirit award and the riders vote for the Best Stage Location. This year Wellington, home for the last two nights of the Absa Cape Epic, has won both these prestigious awards.

Stage Location Manager Marc Erasmus said the Town Spirit award had been based on footage from the event and discussions with riders, crew and media representatives.

“I want to congratulate the Drakenstein Municipality as well as Wellington Tourism, the Wine Route, Wellington Chamber of Commerce and CPUT for doing such an amazing job of promoting the race and getting the entire town involved and excited about it,” said Erasmus.
