A premier event on Cape Town’s wine calendar, the Nederburg Auction is an industry platform created to showcase the spectrum of award-winning wines and rare Cape finds crafted by the country’s most talented winemakers. Since its inception in 1975 this event has evolved into an international event where major local and overseas wine buyers bid for a stringently selected range of the country's finest, most exclusive wines. Recognized as one of the world’s five major wine auctions, the Nederburg Auction offers quality, fine wines that are often only available in limited quantities and not on the open market.
Lots are structured to afford buyers the flexibility of purchasing according to their individual volume requirements. The event has a threefold purpose: to encourage greater wine standards; to develop an awareness of South African wine and to ensure fair distribution of fine, rare wines. All wines selected have earned the Auction’s Seal of Approval, which is affixed to each bottle as a mark of quality and authenticity. This golden seal is an endorsement and a reassurance for both trade and consumers that these wines represent the pinnacle of rare, properly matured, fine South African wines.
38th Nederburg Auction is taking place on the 28th and 29th of September 2012 at the Nederburg Winery in Paarl.
