THE prestigious Cape Fine & Rare Wine Auction, previously the Nederburg Auction, takes place at the Rupert Museum in Stellenbosch on October 18 and 19, 2019.
All 124 wines on auction have gone through a meticulous selection process appraising both investment potential and wine quality. Buyers will have the opportunity to secure some of South Africa’s rarest and most sought-after wines. Having been kept at perfect cellaring conditions by the producers themselves, guaranteeing provenance and ideal maturation, each wine has gone through rigorous quality assessments. Some older vintages have been recorked thanks to the experts at Amorim Cork.
The distinguished, world-class wine selection was curated by some of South Africa’s most revered wine authorities, including Master of Wine Cathy van Zyl, wine judge François Rautenbach, and international wine judge and wine writer Michael Fridjhon.
In association with the internationally recognised auction house Christie’s, the Cape Fine & Rare Wine Auction will also present a selection of wines at the Christie’s London Fine Wine Auction in November, thereby offering South African wine the global stage it deserves.
Some of South Africa’s most iconic wines will be made available as exclusive lots, with competitive reserve prices to match.
The two-day event opens with a pre-tasting at the Rupert Museum on October 18. A charity auction on Saturday, October 19 will be preceded by the main auction.
