Embark on a journey of discovery into rare, exceptionally crafted wines at the Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild auction showcase to be held in Cape Town on 16 August and in Johannesburg 22 August 2018.

This public tasting gives wine enthusiasts the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of South Africa’s top winemakers, while tasting unique collectors’ wines crafted exclusively in small volumes for the 2018 Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild auction.

Spanning over 33 years of winemaking prowess, these auction wines are sought-after for their creative edge and enduring quality. The showcases allow wine lovers to experience these greatly diverse wines as well as other acclaimed flagship offerings by Guild members in an interactive, walk-around tasting hosted by the winemakers themselves.

Showcase-goers will also have the opportunity to contribute towards the Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild Development Trust by bidding on rare, signed bottles from previous Guild auctions during the silent auction. Founded in 1999, the development trust seeks to sustain the health of the wine industry by educating, training and empowering young talent through initiatives such as the Cape Winemakers Guild Protégé Programme, a highly acclaimed mentorship scheme for upcoming winemakers and viticulturists.

The Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild auction will take place on Saturday, 29 September 2018 from 09h00 at Spier Conference Centre in the Stellenbosch Winelands. The auction is open to the public. Telephonic and proxy bidding options are also available to those unable to attend in person. Registration for the auction and VIP lounge will close on Wednesday, 19 September.
