Wine lovers can look forward to tasting some exceptional wines at the Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild Auction Showcases in Cape Town and Joburg this month, when members of the Guild present the wines that will go under the hammer at this year’s Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild Auction.

The Cape Town event takes place on Thursday, 23 August, while the Johannesburg showcase is on Thursday, 30 August. Celebrating 30 years of winemaking excellence this year, the Guild, an association of some of the finest winemakers recognised for their high standard of craftsmanship, comprises 45 members who jointly represent the pinnacle of South African wine achievement. Only wines crafted exclusively for the Guild are sold at the annual auction which is open to the general public, wine collectors as well as the liquor and restaurant trade.

The Showcases in Cape Town and Johannesburg afford wine lovers the opportunity to taste these rare and innovative auction wines as well as other acclaimed flagship wines of Guild members in an informal, walk-around tasting hosted by the winemakers themselves.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid on rare signed bottles from previous Guild Auctions during the Silent Auction in aid of the Nedbank CWG Development Trust. Founded in 1999, the Development Trust assists with education, training and empowerment of young people from wine farming communities and includes the Guild’s Protégé Programme, a mentorship scheme for young, upcoming winemakers.
