The popular Cape Winemaker’s Guild Pre-auction tasting in Hong Kong will again take place at Crown Wine Cellars.  This annual event is held around the world as a prelude to the internationally renowned CWG Auction which takes place in South Africa on Saturday, 6 October 2012.


This year’s line-up includes 54 of the finest selection of hand-crafted wines by South Africa’s most respected wine makers. Production is extremely limited with many of these auction wines only being produced in the hundreds of bottles.


All members and their guests are welcome to attend one of two Pre-auction tastings to be held on 18 & 25 September 2012, starting at 7pm at which time 42 of the above 54 superb investment-grade, collectable wines can be tasted.


As with previous years, there is no charge for these events.


Make the most of our Zero Tax and buy directly from the Auction.  There is no buyer's premium applicable.  1 HKD = 1.08 ZAR


CWC will facilitate your bids and arrange the transport to HK at around HK$75 per bottle (Airfreight to CWC).  Standard container sea-freight is also available but must be arranged directly with the designated transport company.


Members will be able to submit bids directly to the Auction organizers, while CWC will coordinate the successful purchases and transport these to HK on the buyers behalf


This is a popular event which I have hosted annually in HK since 1998.  As such, please RSVP to book the number of places required:
