Experience stellar wines with a creative edge and great diversity from some of South Africa's most lauded winemakers at the Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild Auction Showcase in Cape Town on Thursday, 22 August and Johannesburg on Thursday 29, August, when members of the Guild present their wines to go under the hammer at this year’s Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild Auction. 

Benchmarking over 30 years of winemaking excellence, the Guild comprises 45 winemakers who jointly represent the pinnacle of South African wine achievement. Only wines crafted exclusively for the Guild by these leading winemakers 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 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 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.
