Oscar Court Moyo

I am distinguished man in my late 50’s and have entered into this competition, not to win! However I feel that I have a lot to offer the young generation still and would like for my children and have allowed me to convince the management team at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Balalaika Sandton to give me this opportunity.

Protea Hotel by Marriott Balalaika Sandton - Candidate Oscar Court Moyo
I would like to end my career with a bang and feel that this would be that chance. I started off in the restaurant and bar world as a young man running around for the men who knew the world of whisky and beers and I looked up to them in awe at the knowledge and the way they made serving a gentleman look easy, serving them really expensive wines and selling them like they were gold and convincing the people buying them that it was! I knew then this is something I would like to learn. Then learning the varietals and the difference a grape makes a wine given the correct temperature or the right climate or how weather affects the product, wine was gold, it was gold!

If you have the right wine served with the right food, you can hit the jackpot!

My journey starts….
