2015 sees the announcement of the annual Cape Legends Inter Hotel Challenge now in its third year with 25 hotels from the Cape, Port Elizabeth and KwaZulu-Natal to Gauteng on board. Meet this year's extraordinary Wine Steward Finalists:

This is the second year that Mercy will be representing the award-winning resort at the Inter Hotel Challenge. Mother-of-two, Mercy has worked at One&Only Cape Town since the hotel opened initially as a waitress and more recently as a wine steward at Nobu Cape Town where her bright smile is a familiar fixture. It is as a wine steward recommending choices from the resort’s enormous 5000-strong collection of local and international wines where Mercy discovered her passion and her enthusiasm for her craft is clear to see. Last year, Mercy was acknowledged at the awards ceremony as the 'One to Watch’ wine steward and One&Only Cape Town wishes her the best in her endeavours at this year’s contest.

Says Mercy “Last year was such a big stepping stone into the world of competitive food and beverage service and I learned so much”, adding “this year I hope to challenge myself again by impressing the judges with my honed skills and my ability to engage."
