Taste rare wine before auction

2015-07-28 15:47

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 Thursday 13 August.

Crafted in small volumes exclusively for the annual Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild auction, these wines represent the pinnacle of wine mastery by the Guild’s 46 highly respected members.

The showcase gives wine enthusiasts the opportunity to engage with the winemakers and taste this year’s line-up of auction wines that will go under the hammer in Stellenbosch on 3 October.

Spanning over 30 years of winemaking prowess, these auction wines are sought after for their creative edge and enduring quality. The showcase allows wine lovers to experience these diverse wines as well as other acclaimed flagship offerings by Guild members in an interactive, walk-around tasting hosted by the winemakers themselves.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to bid on rare signed bottles from previous Guild auctions during the silent auction in aid of the Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild development trust.

Founded in 1999, the development trust seeks to educate, train and empower young talent in the wine industry and includes the Guild protégé programme, a mentorship scheme for upcoming winemakers and viticulturists.

The showcase will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 18:00 to 21:00. Entry is R190 per person, including tasting glass. Tickets can be purchased from www.webtickets.co.za.
