Attending a Hidden Gems Wine Course is about developing an ability to talk about the wines of the Cape with knowledge and passion.

Completing a Hidden Gems Wine Course, you will be able to converse about the industry’s rich history, understand how grapes are transformed into wine and, most importantly, appreciate how this transformation creates and influences the character and style of wine to make it one of the most enjoyable beverages in the world.

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • order wine with confidence
  • impress your dinner guests (if that’s what presses your buttons)
  • be invited to more dinner parties (you’re kidding – you really want that?!)
  • get wine stewards to start paying attention to you (often you will know even more than they do!)
