It’s the little things that make an dining experience extraordinary. Great lighting, comfortable chairs, presentation – they really make a difference. One of the simplest luxuries when dining is finding the perfect glass of wine to accompany your meal. And The President Hotel has brought in an expert sommelier to help you find it.
Job Jovo hails from Riebeek-Kasteel and began his journey in hospitality in 2010 as a waiter at The Royal Hotel. His interest in wine arose from the famous Swartland Revolution Wine Festival that happens at the hotel, and being surrounded by the vineyards of Swartland. Job says:
‘I took my first step by enrolling with the Cape Wine Academy in 2013, which I am very grateful for as they equipped me with an extensive knowledge on South African wines. I became very passionate and very hungry to learn more about wine and therefore enrolled with the Wines & Spirit Education Trust, governed by the International Wines Education Centre based in London and acquired my WEST level 3 in 2015.’
From there Job never looked back. In September 2016, Job joined the President Hotel and has taken their offerings to the next value. His focus is on the new wine list at the hotel, the cocktails and the new artisanal gin collection. The new wine list at the President Hotel includes over 14 different wine farms, providing guests with the best wine selections in the country. Add a delectable Summer menu and a recommendation from Job and you’re bound to have a great meal at the hotel.
