Understanding Wine

Posted on: March 2nd, 2014 by Butler Academy No Comments


Excellent training day at Simonsig Wine Estate in Stellenbosch.


Named after the majestic views of the Simonsberg Mountain, Simonsig Estate is situated in the famous Stellenbosch Winelands just 45 km east of Cape Town. Since French Huguenot Jacques Malan first set foot in the Cape in 1688, the Malan family’s wine knowledge accumulated over many generations, has equipped them to excel as one of the leading private producers of estate wines in South Africa.


The South African Butler Academy is proud to be part of the Simonsig as we are spoiled to the “t” by Denzil.


Denzil is one of the wine curators and manages the tasting centre at Simonsig. He grew up on the farm and has completed his Sommelier Course and provides in-depth knowledge of Wine / MCC and understanding the fundamentals.  The Butler Academy students walk away with an immense amount of knowledge. We invest in proper butler training which makes sense and becomes part of your career.


Thank you Simonsig and the Butler Academy,enjoy the movie below.
