about us

Established in 2020 by Zimbabwean sommeliers hailing from diverse corners of the globe, our headquarters are situated in Harare, Zimbabwe. However, SAZ extends its warm embrace to the broader Zimbabwean diaspora. Our primary objective is to uphold the principles of the ASI, fostering inclusivity and facilitating the integration of members of the Sommeliers Association of Zimbabwe (SAZ) into the global sommelier community. As of 2023, the Sommeliers Association of Zimbabwe proudly stands as a full member of the Association de la Sommellerie Internationale.

The Sommeliers Association of Zimbabwe proudly extends a comprehensive range of benefits to its members. These benefits include discounted courses with our education partners, opportunities to obtain internationally recognized certifications, and access to the vast global network of sommeliers via the ASI. Additionally, members have the chance to compete in prestigious international competitions such as the Best Sommelier of the World, as well as fight for the national title. SAZ members also have the privilege to apply for scholarships and internationally funded bursaries, facilitating further studies and enhancing their global relevance.

Register today to become a SAZ member for the year 2024, at the modest fee of only 10 USD. Join us in enriching your sommelier journey and unlocking a world of opportunities.
