He did his best, we are very proud of him

After a first round of practical and technical tests that took place over two days, the semi-finalists who are still in the race for the title of 2019 ASI Best Sommelier of the World are now known. 

Only 19 of the 66 candidates who came to Antwerp have been selected for the next round. This sees the end of the competition for South African candidate, Jo Wessels. This was his first time competing and only the 2nd time South Africa was represented.
