Sense of Taste – Butler Practical Training

The South African Butler Academy prides itself on practical training. South Africa offers a wide selection of the finest products and resources to teach our students practically. We export 65% of South African wines to the rest of the world. Our surroundings offer the finest selection of wines, cheeses, grappa, chocolates and award winning beer breweries.


At the South African Butler Academy we are proud of our curricula –  memorable experiences. Our Teaching methods are oriented around the enjoyment of excellent quality products in the company of friendly and well informed hosts.


The South African Butler Academy is first in line when it comes to; what you see is what you sell. We teach our students real butler training. It is far better to experience the world of cheese and wine practically as it is made on the farm than to read about it in class.


Take a look at our exceptional day out and bout Paarl / Stellenbosch.

Congratulations to Giovanni who received the honour of being Butler of the week on our current 8 week Butler course.


Giovanni has shown from week one that he is very committed and that he sets high standards for himself.  He gets on well with his fellow students and has impressed on his days as Head Butler.  He is hard working, pays attention to detail and is always ready to serve with a smile.  These are very important qualities of a Butler and will be beneficial to him in his future career.
Well done Giovanni!
