SASA Sommelier EXAMINATION Level 2
The examination covers theory, blind tasting and practical dining room work.
The examination may include subjects not covered in the SASA Foundational Sommellerie Course and will change from time to time.
The candidate is required to showcase knowledge and expertise that is to be expected from a professional sommelier, and must successfully pass all three sections in order to be awarded the title of SASA Sommelier. It is recommended that the candidate has a theoretical and practical level of understanding in line with WSET Level 3, the Cape Wine Academy Diploma or the Court of Master Sommeliers Certified Sommelier. The SASA Sommelier examination is open for all SASA members to sit without any prerequisites, e.g. the SASA courses or any of the relevant wine qualifications, under the condition that the member has, in his/her own opinion, accumulated enough experience elsewhere in order to attempt the examination.
