The Cape Wine Academy Diploma Wine Course is the minimum prescribed qualifying examination. Candidates must have achieved a minimum of 60% in all the qualifying examinations of the CWA Diploma Wine Course in order to apply for registration to the Cape Wine Master programme.
Local and International qualifications and the recognition of other prior learning will be considered on application.
Applications to register for the CWM programme will open in February and will close on the 31st July of each year.
The Cape Wine Academy will advise candidates of their application status within 2 weeks after their submission.
Passion for wine is an imperative for the journey toward becoming a Cape Wine Master. While a number of Cape Wine Masters are employed in the wine industry as marketers, educators, retailers, and winemakers, there is no requirement that candidates should be involved directly in the wine industry or wine education.
