Sisters are doin' it for themselves: Berrie, Dillon and Nash.

Three new graduates were today awarded diplomas as Cape Wine Masters at a ceremony held at Lourensford in Somerset West.

The graduates are Leigh Berrie from Johannesburg, a medical scientist specialising in molecular biology and whose dissertation was “Genetically Modified Organisations in the Wine Industry”; Catherine Dillon from Cape Town, owner of a wine tourism business Wanderer Wines and whose dissertation was on “Waste Management in the Wine Industry” and Mary-Lou Nash of Black Pearl Wines in Paarl, whose dissertation was on “Garagiste Winemaking in South Africa – Less is More”.

The first Cape Wine Masters qualified in 1984. Out of the 193 candidates who have ever attempted to gain the qualification, only 78 have been successful. Current membership of the institute amounts to 71 (including three honorary members).
