The Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild Auction is recognized as South Africa’s leading wine auction and since 1982, it has become a benchmark of excellence and the CWG label is widely held as an authentic assurance of quality and craftsmanship.
The majority of the wines on offer are produced in extremely low quantities making them very sought after.
Interested parties have the opportunity to bid online directly this year but CWC will assist with the transportation of the wines from South Africa to Hong Kong.
Alternatively, as with previous years, CWC will consolidate and coordinate a syndicate of buyers for those people who prefer a few bottles of each wine.
CWC will be offering two tastings representing 29 different wines that will be on the auction block. Please click here for the CWG Auction Catalogue.
