FRIDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2017
Day one of the Nederburg Auction is more formal and largely business orientated, with the bulk of the wines in the line-up being auctioned. Buyers attending Friday therefore do so without partners, utilising the opportunity to taste the wines that are part of the day’s bidding line-up. The tasting automatically provides the business backdrop for both networking and finalising the bidding strategy for the day.
There is further opportunity to network and connect with key players in the industry over the business lunch, which also gives buyers a chance to refresh and prepare for the second half of the day’s bidding. Business attire is required for Friday.

SATURDAY 16 SEPTEMBER 2017
Day two of the Nederburg Auction is characterised by a more relaxed atmosphere, with a guest speaker, entertainment and a beauty and fashion lifestyle component that partners of invited guests will enjoy. Saturday morning focuses on auctioning the remaining lots to buyers, generally concluding at around midday and moving straight into the charity auction, which is open to everyone and always extremely well supported.
Once all the hard work is done, guests and their partners are invited to relax into the social lunch, which often extends into the late afternoon. Considering the more relaxed occasion of the Saturday, it goes without saying that dress code is always something really special, and often aligned with the theme for the day, which is communicated to buyers before the time.
