Not one to rest on his laurels, Moses is constantly honing his craft. His journey as a sommelier continues as he sharpens his skills and expands his knowledge. Over and above the training he received from his former mentor at Restaurant Mosaic, renowned French sommelier Germain Lehodey, he has travelled abroad and explored the Cape winelands. A graduate of the Cape Wine Academy (CWA) and the International Wine Centre (IWC), Moses is currently completing his Level 3 at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET), a British organisation that is regarded as one of the World’s leading providers of wine education.

His labours have yielded fruit: Moses is now leading the Restaurant Mosaic cellar team as master of one of the biggest wine cellars in South Africa, with more than 5500 different local and international labels.

Eat Out judging convenor Margot Janse says, “The combination of Moses’s incredible wine knowledge and perfectly in-tune guest relations make for a very impressive service.”
