The Dave Hughes Tribute dinner being held at Neethlingshof in June 2017 provides an opportunity for the wine and spirit fraternity to show their affection and regard for this remarkable man.

THIS TRIBUTE EVENT ON Fri 9th June is sold out!

Dave Hughes played a significant role in flying the South African flag at international wine education conferences as well as the International Wine & Spirit Competition for decades. His role as a taster of wine and spirits is acknowledged worldwide and he counts some of the luminaries of the global wine fraternity as friends and colleagues – from Italy, to California, Australia and New Zealand and beyond.

The gala dinner will incorporate a special Tribute auction with some very special lots available. Patrick Grubb MW, the longest serving wine auctioneer in the world who worked closely with Dave at the annual Nederburg Auction has donated a bottle of 1914 Madeira while long-time friends John and Erica Platter are prepared to spend a weekend playing golf and cooking and eating curry in KwaZulu-Natal with the lucky bidder on the Platter lot!

The venue for the Tribute dinner, which is being catered by Masterchef SA and Ultimate Braaimaster judge Pete Goffe-Wood, is Neethlingshof Estate on Friday, June 9 and starts 18:30 for 18:45. Tickets are R1000.00 per head and available from Celia Gilloway. Please advise any dietary requirements.
