The Jakob Award 2018, on topic Innovative Tourist Programs and The Offer on Wine Roads.

The company has been developing a very precise and well-considered offer in the wine growing region Golsa near the Neusiedler Lake, the largest part of which is in Burgenland in Austria, and its smaller, southernmost part, in Hungary. »The offer of the wine road is enriched by event and entertainment programs. Wine culture is experienced by visitors differently: during cycling, related to sports activities, Nordic walking and other forms. There are about 20 such wine tours available. During visits to the wine cellars, they learn about culinary specialties with various tastings, organized cooking workshops and lectures, even in connection with getting  possible handicraft or fine arts knowledge, including cosmetics, and other contents. The whole system is very clearly and firmly established. Not only dates, but also prices, which proves that such a policy can bring adequate tourism benefits to everyone in the wine-growing region, " is written in the report of the commission consisting  of prof. dr. Janez Bogataj, President, Jožko Sirk and Lojze Wieser, Members.
