Wines of South Africa Masterclasses - Boston (4/2), Chicago (4/8)

On April 2nd and 8th Wines of South Africa (www.wosa.us) will be hosting a series of masterclasses for sommeliers, wine directors, and retail wine buyers in Boston and Chicago. A dozen wines representing the quality and diversity of South Africa’s varied wine regions across the Cape will be presented. Jim Clarke, former top New York City sommelier, freelance wine journalist, and WOSA US Marketing Manager will put the wines in context, discussing terroir, traditions, and current trends. The class is free for members of the trade. We'd love for you to join us!

Attending sommeliers will also have the opportunity to enter the WOSA Sommelier Cup 2019. A hour-long written quiz after the masterclass will be part of the first round. Similar quizzes will be given across the U.S. through the beginning of May, and the top five scorers will then be flown for the semi-final in New York in June. The final winner there will then go on to compete in Cape Town in September.
