Moments of Appreciation

Sometimes the best way to truly appreciate ‘ordinary things’ is not to have them for a while. The second round of prohibition and protracted travel restrictions has made many liberties taken for granted so much more precious.

TESTIMONIALS

“I enrolled in CWA in order to quench my thirst for understanding more about wine and the wine making process. The Certificate Course is truly amazing. The level of knowledge from the lecturers is outstanding and very inspirational. The people you meet will become your comrades in your wine journey and life long friends”

Mandy Lee Santana

“My advice to anyone who’s thinking of doing the South African Wine Course: GO FOR IT. It’s exciting, thrilling and exhilarating all at once. This is the first step of an amazing journey. Once you start, you can’t stop.”

“Before doing any Cape Wine Academy courses, I had an ignorant view about wine and thought that wine was only for a certain class of people. The Cape Wine Academy transformed me from an ignorant man to a wine expert. Initially, I enrolled just to understand the wine production. But once I started, I didn’t want to stop learning. I am now a Diploma graduate.”

“I had the most amazing experience when I did this course. The lecturer was very knowledgeable and taught me many new things. I would encourage everyone to do the SAWC. There is so much to learn, even if you already have some knowledge on wine. Do it with a friend or family member who has an interest in wine because it makes it so much more enjoyable to do it with someone you know. I can’t wait to register for more courses and continue my wine education journey!”
