DINERS CLUB WINE LIST AWARDS 2012
There are just a handful of hospitality establishments in the land that can celebrate a Diners Club Diamond Class wine list, and Hartford House is among them. Yet Hartford is unique, inasmuch as it is among a select few countrywide to have enjoyed the highest recognition of its wine selection by Diners Club in their annual awards for 10 consecutive years, and coming as it does hard on the heels of the announcement that Hartford's restaurant has once again made the nation's top twenty, this "Diamond" is especially welcome.
"Diners Club Diamond Class Wine List Award"
The highest accolade a restaurant can earn itself in the beverage league, is a Diamond award for its wine list. For well over a decade, Hartford's wines have enjoyed recognition at the highest level, and it has just earned its eleventh Diners Club Diamond Class award.
We have prided ourselves in providing visitors with an experience which ranks in every division of our business, with the best in the world, hence the adage "the only world class hotel on a world class stud farm in the world". The plaudits on the food side have been many and varied, and Jackie Cameron, our Head Chef, has become a national and international celebrity. We get one chance every year when it comes to the beverages, so there are no rehearsals, and it's a great compliment to the team, Ainsley Williams, Scott Morgan, Mbulelo Mahlungulu and the rest of the front-of-house team, that they should have once again made it to the summit of the mountain.
We are lucky to live where we do, and especially to work with the people around us. Between Summerhill Stud (crowned just a month and a half ago for the seventh consecutive year as the Champion racehorse breeders of the nation), and Hartford House, we have aspired to do nothing more than our best and a bit more, and this is one of the ultimate accolades. That said, without the encouragement of our customers, who give us the chance to serve, none of this would've been possible. To all of you who patronise our business and get us up in the mornings, thank you.
