Tinashe Nyamudoka: The Pride of the African Wine World

Although the art of wine, or more accurately wine waiting, is dominated by northern countries, the story of Tinashe Nyamudoka  may well inspire vocations across the vast African continent. Having risen swiftly up the ladder of the practice and even outstripped the UK and the US at the World Blind Tasting Championship in 2018, the 36-year-old Zimbabwean has every intention of practising his art and developing the profession in his own country: “There’s been an emergence of Black sommeliers in the world as the industry becomes more diverse. We see the hospitality offering in Zimbabwe improving, and there will be a need for sommeliers.”
