Records tumbled at the 27th Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild auction held in the Stellenbosch winelands on Saturday 1 October 2011, with a record turnover of R5 286 700, a new record price for red wine and overseas sales doubling. Despite the record turnover up by R1,4 million over the previous year and some outstanding prices, the 2011 Auction offered excellent value for money and great diversity.
Exceptional wines with a creative edge and great diversity of styles was the hallmark of the Guild’s 2011 auction, recognised as South Africa’s leading wine auction open to the wine trade and the general public. All the wines are crafted exclusively for the Auction by members of the Guild to represent the pinnacle of what can be achieved in South African winemaking.
Neil and Sue Proudfoot of Wine Concepts on Kloof secured some excellent wines again this year at the auction. These wines will be available through Wine Concepts from November 2011, but if you want to make sure you don’t miss out, then you can reserve your wine now.
