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 and Johannesburg on Wednesday, 26 August 2015.

 

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 Auction Showcases give 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 Saturday, 3 October.

 

Spanning over 30 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 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.
