Winetech 2020 Workshops for Senior Cellar Assistants - Vredendal

The second Winetech 2020 workshop for senior cellar assistants was recently presented in Vredendal by Mauritius Naudè of Lutzville Vineyards. Senior cellar assistants, with a Wine Training South Africa SKOP 3 qualification, from Namaqua Wines, Lutzville Vineyards and Klawer Wine Cellars learned more about production costs, winemaking faults, production losses and spoilage on cellar profits. Some of the aspects discussed included the calculation of product and product cost; the calculation of profit and the selling price; costs of packaging materials as well as the different levies which must be paid by the cellars. Participation is free of charge to cellars in the participating areas, but booking is essential.
