Western Cape  

I am a hardworking, knowledgeable liquor store manager of a store selling 450 different South African wines. I have created my own wine club with 48 members and planning on starting to do tastings with the wine club. In 2019 I have completed the WSET Level 2 award in Wines & Spirits and passed with a distinction in March and passed the WSET Level 3 award in Wines in August 2019. I am an individual that enjoys to learn about new things and I am hoping to still further my wine education in the future.

I have strong people skills and a friendly demeanor that will help me communicate with customers and understand their needs and preferences. I have good sales, administrative and management skills and can work well on my own and within a team environment. I am willing to learn more and even though I come from a wine retail background, I can quickly adjust and put my wine knowledge and skills to work and learn new skills as the job needs. I am looking for the opportunity to get more involved with the wine industry and be able to grow myself and my passion, and hope that I will be the right fit for your business.

I am currently in Kwazulu-Natal, but looking for an opportunity to relocate to the Western Cape winelands or Cape Town. I am passionate about the wine and liquor industry and believe this area is the best for me to grow my career and passion. My girlfriend is relocating to the Cape in the next 3 months and this is also a big reason I want to relocate.
I am willing to learn and start at the bottom and prove myself.
