The auction preview and a barrel tasting will take place on the 14th at Waterford Wine Estate, while the auction itself will happen at the Delaire Graff Estate and finishes with a banquet prepared by “celebrity” culinary team.

The auction will raise money for various charities, including The Peebles Project, The Click Foundation and the Make a Wish Foundation, to raise funds for the education of children living on the wine farms of the Cape.

The proceeds of the auction will go towards primary and secondary education, bursaries for tertiary education, technological innovation and the creation of a “leadership academy”.
