The Stellenbosch Somm Bootcamp is a five-day intensive course featuring both online and practical immersion into Stellenbosch wine. Drawing on the Stellenbosch Terroir Toolkit, you will go on an immersive terroir tour through all four corners of Stellenbosch, covering aspects such as viticulture, tutored technical tastings, and site visits with producers and industry experts. This course will give you a full understanding of Stellenbosch’s terroir, its history, and an in-depth knowledge of the taste profiles of Stellenbosch’s champion varietals, as well as the chance to engage with wine producers and fellow wine professionals.

To complete the course, you will be expected to pass a quiz on Stellenbosch terroir, as well as give a presentation to a panel of judges to receive your coveted Stellenbosch wine ambassador’s pin.

We look forward to taking you on this Stellenbosch terroir learning experience.
