Obsession Wins Ribble Valley Tourism Award

Northcote wins Ribble Valley Tourism Awards 2015

Tourism Stars Come Out to Celebrate

Tourism stars were out in force for a special celebratory event hosted at Browsholme Hall

The Ribble Valley Tourism Association organized the awards, which are an opportunity to celebrate the success of local tourism enterprises such as restaurants, hotels and attractions. They also provide the chance to reward the special efforts of individual staff in making visitors and guests welcome into the area.

Anyone could make a nomination, members of the public, a business about another business, a business about themselves, and the panel, including sponsors, considered a large number of submissions.

The awards are not necessarily designed to determine the ‘best of ‘but more to recognize achievement, innovation, good design, creativity and most of all people, both as individuals and as teams, as it is the  people that work so hard to make visitors welcome and make tourism in Ribble Valley so special.

RVTA Chairman Amanda Dowson said; ‘The area has a strong and successful tourism industry and there are so many great examples of business entrepreneurialism and creativity. These awards provide a great opportunity to celebrate that success.’ 

Awards coordinator, Tourism officer Tom Pridmore said ‘this year we had even more nominations, the Ribble Valley Tourism awards are a celebration of just some of the many good things happening in this area.

Northcote are honoured to have been recognised in the Tourism Event of the Year category for our Obsession festival.

Another Wine Win for Nothcote

Another Wine Win for Nothcote

Tamas Czinki

Tamas Czinki, our Assistant Sommelier, has passed the notoriously difficult Advanced Sommelier exam. 

Hot on the heels of our Head Sommelier Adam Pawlowski – who late last year became a Master Sommelier and the first ever from Poland – Tamas was one of only nine candidates to have passed the the exam out of a class of 17 at The Vineyard at Stockcross earlier this month. Just one level below a Master Sommelier, Tamas' victory further cements our stellar reputation for wine and the never-ending talent of our award-winning restaurant team.
