Sec­ond time's a charm for som­me­lier Moses Mag­waza

es­tau­rant Mo­saic som­me­lier Moses Mag­waza has won the Wine Ser­vice Award for the sec­ond year run­ning at the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restau­rant Awards.

Not one to rest on his lau­rels, Moses is con­stantly hon­ing his craft. His jour­ney as a som­me­lier con­tin­ues as he sharp­ens his skills and ex­pands his knowl­edge. Over and above the train­ing he re­ceived from his for­mer men­tor at Restau­rant Mo­saic, renowned French som­me­lier Ger­main Le­hodey (also a win­ner this year; see be­low), he has trav­elled abroad and ex­plored the Cape winelands. A grad­u­ate of the Cape Wine Academy (CWA) and the In­ter­na­tional Wine Cen­tre (IWC), Moses is cur­rently com­plet­ing his Level 3 at the Wine and Spirit Ed­u­ca­tion Trust (WSET), a Bri­tish or­gan­i­sa­tion that is re­garded as one of the World’s lead­ing providers of wine ed­u­ca­tion.

His labours have yielded fruit: Moses is now lead­ing the Mo­saic cel­lar team as mas­ter of one of the big­gest wine cel­lars in South Africa, with more than 5500 dif­fer­ent lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional la­bels.

Says Eat Out judg­ing con­venor Mar­got Janse, "The com­bi­na­tion of Moses's in­cred­i­ble wine knowl­edge and per­fectly in-tune guest re­la­tions make for a very im­pres­sive ser­vice."
