2018 Nederburg Auction

Nederburg Auction
COST:    R1800
VENUE:    Nederburg, Sonstraal Rd, Paarl

The Nederburg Auction is an opportunity for wine enthusiasts from around the world to bid on and invest in an incredible collection of older South African fine, rare wines.

The Nederburg Auction takes place over two days in September each year and the 2018 event takes place on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th September this year. It is a perfect opportunity for guests to catch up with old friends and meet like-minded wine enthusiasts in a fun-filled yet relaxed environment. Those fortunate enough to obtain a ticket to this exclusive event are treated to some of the finest foods and beverages, also synonymous with the Cape Winelands. Top celebrity chefs and baristas are on hand to treat guests to the unique evolution of their culinary and coffee creations, accompanied by live entertainment and world-class wines.

For anyone interested in the heritage of South Africa’s fine wines, there is no other event like this where guests have an opportunity to taste all but the rarest wines on Auction before bidding on these rare wine gems. Approximately 100 wines showcasing the very best of what South Africa’s renowned producers have achieved will be available for tasting the day before the Auction. This pre-Auction tasting is hosted by the participating producers and gives buyers the opportunity to meet the creators of some of South Africa’s finest wines.

To ensure wines are even more rare and exclusive to the Nederburg Auction, the entry criteria was changed in 2018. All red wines entered have to be six years and older, same for port and sweet wines. White wines and MCC were changed from 2 years to 3 years and older to be eligible for selection. All wines on Auction should not have been available in the trade for at least a year prior to Auction.

The 2018 collection includes 108 wines from 64 producers including debut participants Bartinney, Beau Constantia, Le Lude and Sijnn. The wines on auction this year are fewer, even more rare than before and there’s something for every palate. What makes this collection so exciting is that no two years are the same. There are some seriously old wines with remarkable stories, new wines from very old vines and wines rated amongst the best in world.

Friday’s programme includes: Pre-Auction Tasting, Charity Auction, Gourmet Dinner
Saturday’s programme includes: Keynote Address, Auction, Gourmet Lunch
