Winetech 2018 Study Group 3
The Winetech study groups make a considerable contribution in transferring knowledge and technology to cellar assistants. Three Afrikaans and Xhosa study groups are presented in participating regions at central venues.

The aim of the Winetech study groups is not only to transfer knowledge, but also to increase and stimulate productivity in a practical and holistic manner.

The subjects discussed in the study groups differ from year to year and during 2018 the focus was on cellar hygiene; stabilisation of wine and bottling procedures. The facilitators Nomonde Kubheka and Charl Theron present the study groups in the different regions.

Participation is free of charge and semi-literate cellar assistants are welcome to attend as well.

The bottling and packaging of wine was discussed during the third series of the Winetech study groups in the participating regions.

Aspects such as the final production process before wine will reach the consumer; preparation of wine before bottling; lists of controls before bottling and bottling methods and equipment were discussed.
