"We are beyond humbled and delighted to have won the Hospitality and Tourism category in the incredibly challenging year that has been 2021” - Libby Cupitt

​​​​​​​This is the third time Cupitt's Estate has won an award at the Illawarra Business Awards. In 2018, the business won the Excellence in Tourism award and in the 2019 the Hospitality & Retail category.

The Cupitt Family are on the verge of opening a new arm to their long list of hospitality and tourism offerings. From December you can now stay and dine at Cupitt’s in one of the ten luxury pods overlooking green pastures and eucalypt trees a stones throw from the winery, cellar door and restaurant. 

"It has been such a tough year with the lockdowns, travel restrictions and health regulations, and our staff’s hard work and resilience in adapting to the constant changes in the workplace is truly what makes us tick. It is such a wonderful win for us to recognise our team's incredible work and commitment to our business and our customers. Winning alongside another Shoalhaven winery is a great win for the Shoalhaven wine region as well as the tourism industry.” - Libby Cupitt
