The South African Sommeliers Association (SASA) has established itself as an integral part of the food and wine industry in South Africa. The movement was started in 2010 when a group of same minded individuals got together to form an association to help uplift and promote the service of wine in South Africa. SASA is a non-profit organisation and act as a contact and network portal for local and international sommeliers.

The association facilitates training through its APP’s and mentors aspiring individuals to guarantee the continuous development of professional standards of the highest level. SASA is a member of the ASI (the international sommelier association) and therefore act as an official representative of its professional membership within and outside of South Africa.
