WE ARE CAPE WINE ACADEMY
Cape Wine Academy is a privately-owned enterprise that was founded in 1979.
Cape Wine Academy is recognised as the official wine education and training institution in South Africa covering the Gauteng, Kwazulu-Natal, Port Elizabeth and Western Cape regions with conveniently located course facilities.
Cape Wine Academy has seen more than 200,000 students through its doors since its inception in 1979. Many of South Africa’s wine industry experts have completed some form of education, training or experience with the academy over this 40-year period.
The academy is unique in that focuses on the nuances of the South African wine landscape without losing the context of what’s happening in the other wine regions around the world. It does this by ‘tapping into’ the local knowledge and wisdom of affiliated and actively involved wine specialists whose expertise is incorporated into the training materials and assessments.
The academy has also collaborated with several partners, either directly or strategically, to ensure that wine education in South Africa takes into consideration the needs and interests of the wide spectrum of its industry players. These partners include wine producers, distributors, retailers, restaurateurs, hotels, training providers and Cape Wine Masters.
Enjoy the journey... everyone is welcome.
