Looking ahead to 2023

Updated: Dec 23, 2022


2023 AND LOOKING FORWARD


With 2022 almost in our rearview mirror, there were some really big highs for SASA. With the support of our title sponsor Stellenbosch Wine Routes and additional support from PIWOSA and other secondary sponsors, we have had an incredible year. A few major highlights were the success of introducing the Introductory Sommeliers Qualification with over 200 students passing, and also having the most candidates in one year to pass the Junior Sommeliers Exam.


It promises to be another huge year ahead for SASA as we introduce masterclasses to all SASA members and students. These classes will be there to help candidates prepare for exams, competitions, and much more in the sommelier world. SASA will also be continuing with the introductory sommelier qualification, which was a massive success in 2022, and will introduce new and exciting initiatives to further grow and engage our membership in 2023



As 2023 approaches, we already have a full calendar with exciting events:
