Candidate Wine Steward Katlego Mokgosi from: The Palace of the Lost City (Sun International) Allesverloern & Van Ryn's.

“After matriculating in 2014 from Bafokeng High School I started working at the Cascades Hotel where I was employed as a mini bar attendant for three months. I moved to Bocado Restaurant, which is also in the Cascades Hotel.This outlet helped me to gain and have passion for the Hospitality industry. We worked as a team and I worked extra shifts so that I could gain more knowledge with regards to the whole F&B operation. I have also worked in banqueting and as a pastry chef. This also helped me to learn about what happens back of house.

I am currently working at The Palace Hotel, which is the flagship hotel of the Sun International Group and Sun City Resort, as Bartender at Tusk Bar and serve wine and cocktails. It has been great, but the most part that I enjoy is to present the best wines that we have at The Palace of the Lost City.

When I was appointed to the Tusk Bar I developed a real passion for service. Recommending a great wine to a guest is what I am best at.It has always been a great journey to me and working with wine is what I love most. I would like to see myself as Head Wine Steward.

It has always been my dream to study Hospitality Management. I have attended the Diego Cocktail academy.

Upselling of wine is what I am best at!”
