Hosted by Grape Pip, it’s still possible to bid for as many as 30 fine wines kindly donated by a range of famous producers.

Proceeds from each sale will go to a range of children’s charities, and click here to see the wines on offer.

Meanwhile, the £15,000 already raised will be used by Children with Cancer to pay for a free telephone line for parents of children with cancer.

The charity wine auction will run online until Sunday 15 December and contains many wines which are unobtainable in the marketplace, while a number bear labels signed by the winemaker or property owner.

As previously reported by db, The Grape Foundation’s Children’s Charity Auction raised over £55,000 in a single day.
