PYDA Graduation 2017

It is always a pleasure to see education that really works - and the Pinotage Youth Development Academy, established in 2013, has graduated 122 young people over the years, with 90% of them being employed.  This year's graduates have some serious sass, and high heels and cool socks were the order of the day!  The graduation took place at The Shed (off Annandale Road) and was a bright, spacious and happy space to receive the new graduates for 2017.

Nikki Munro and her able team to remarkable work, and slowly but surely transforming the work base of the wine industry.  Their course takes a year, and the students are exposed to a variety of wine industry environments, from pruning the vines, to tasting room work, to marketing.

There is no shortage of sassy attitude in this year's class, and we wish them all the very best for their future.
