A total of 200 unemployed township youngsters who trained as wine advisers under the auspices of an R11-million government-sponsored job creation programme have completed their training.

The youths, aged 18 and above, were chosen from Western Cape and Gauteng townships for the 12-month training course as part of a joint partnership between the Department of Tourism and the Cape Wine Academy.

The course focused on wine and marketing and included six-week practicals at hotels, wine estates, retail chain stores and liquor companies and distributors.

After graduating as wine advisers on the first level of the Cape Sommelier programme, the youngsters will be eligible to work in hotels, restaurants and the liquor industry.
