HOW DO I BECOME A WINE MASTER?

Uncorked One is simply the best introduction to wine in Jozi. In just one day you will hear about and TASTE the key South African varietals (grapes used) and learn how not to feel like a tosser in a restaurant. You will also learn a whole lot of stuff about wine shopping, about coming face-to-face with a restaurant wine list and surviving and about storing wine in your linen cupboard.
