All Cape Wine Academy lectures are presented by winemakers, viticulturists, Diploma graduates, and Cape Wine Masters, who are actively involved in shaping the South African Wine industry today.

 

New Cape Wine Master Harry Melck!
We  want to congratulate Harry for passing the Cape Wine Master program (www.capewineacademy.co.za), and welcome him as the 101st member to the Institute of
Cape Wine Masters (www.icwm.co.za).


The graduation was held at the beautiful KWV Cathedral Cellar in Paarl. It was indeed a memorable day with a tasting of exceptional KWV vintages, an impressing lunch and many  passionate speeches!
