Thanks to Colin Donald at the Sunday Herald who published this article on Winton’s VIBES Award win on 16th December 2012.

Winton House, the corporate events and wedding venue near Pencaitland in East Lothian, has won the best micro-business award at this year’s VIBES (Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland) in recognition for its work in local sourcing, waste-cutting, recycling and promotion of biodiversity.

Currently gearing up for its programme of corporate Christmas events, the stately home, parts of which date from the 15th century, is owned by Sir Francis Ogilvy.

While the ‘exclusive use venues’ market suffered from the slashing of corporate entertainment budgets following the banking crisis in 2008, Ogilvy says that Winton has made a steady recovery in 2012, attracting around 70 corporate events along with a programme of private events and weddings.
