Perricoota Vines Retreat were thrilled to be the recipients of this year's GOLD award for Deluxe Accommodation on Saturday night at the Regional Tourism Awards. So many years of hard, but rewarding work have been recognised with this award, adding some real fizz to our flutes of bubbly on Saturday night. PVR congratulated their team, their staff, their families and J. Berthaume who runs their popular booking website www.perricootavines.com
"The highlight of the night was sharing it with one of Echuca's most selfless advocates, Maureen Baker and actor/singer John Waters who were on the table with us. What a lovely man and what a wonderful singer! His tribute to the treasured skipper, Kevin Hutchison who we lost earlier this year was truly moving. What a night. Thank you so much to everyone who helped us along the way and also to the visitors who continue to come back and write such wonderful reviews. It makes it all worth while when nights like this occur." FROM PRESS RELEASE: 2016 Regional Tourism Award Winners Announced
