Tickets and Registration

The Nederburg Auction, South Africa’s premier wine auction of rare and iconic wines, takes place over two days in September each year. The perfect opportunity for guests from around the world to catch-up with old friends and make new ones while being entertained and wowed from beginning to end. Guests attending will be treated to some of the finest foods and beverages, which are also synonymous with the Cape Winelands. Top celeb chefs and baristas are on hand to indulge guests in their unique evolution with their culinary and coffee creations accompanied by live entertainment.

The Nederburg Auction is not too dissimilar to a game of golf where those who attend are passionate about wine, want to meet and network with people who share this passion, generally friends or business associates. While on the course, golf is highly competitive, similarly, whilst in the bidding hall, the competition and tension is palpable. With deals agreed and after all is said and done, the day ends in the 19th hole with a fantastic gourmet lunch and celebration of the day’s activities.

Friday: The pre-Auction tasting takes place on the first day, where buyers are given an opportunity to meet the creators of some of South Africa’s most remarkable wines and to taste all but the rarest wines going under the hammer. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to purchase tickets to attend some Tutored Tastings hosted by some top wine personalities. The tasting will be followed by the Charity Auction and a networking and social gourmet dinner experience.

Saturday: Day two is business focussed with the Auction commencing early with the keynote address. The Auction is an opportunity for serious wine buyers to network, buy iconic wines and be engaged without distraction. To ensure punters remain focussed and at the top of their game, sommeliers will be serving wine and canapés throughout the morning.  After a busy and intense morning of bidding, the day will evolve into an afternoon of enjoying fine cuisine from supremely talented chefs whilst being entertained by awesome tunes from local artists.

The Auction promises to be a memorable and fantastic event where iconic wines and gourmet food are the focus of the day.

The carefully selected judging panel consisting of wine experts and Masters of Wine (MW) have selected some of the most rare and iconic South African wines for the Auction. The Nederburg Auction has established itself as one of the top wine auctions globally with a focus on rare vintages, iconic wines and wines which are expected to age exceptionally well.
