It is almost time for the prestigious 2018 The Cape Wine Auction – an elite gathering regarded as one of the most extraordinary wine events internationally. De Toren Private Cellar has joined forces with the award-winning Tintswalo Hotel Group to offer an absolutely magnificent lot in aid of raising funds for an exceptionally good cause.

The days of 9 – 10 February will mark the elite gathering of wine aficionados, leading businessmen, distinguished entrepreneurs and celebrities from around the globe to raise funds for a good cause whilst enjoying the gastronomic feast and fine wine selection from South Africa’s top culinary experts and leading wine producers.

Guests will have the opportunity to bid on any of the spectacular lots, including the phenomenal lot on offering by De Toren and Tintswalo. The mandate of The Cape Wine Auction Trust is to raise money for education in the South African winelands, by supporting just under 20 different beneficiaries, each doing their part to help this cause. De Toren is proud to have helped in making this mandate a reality since the inception of The Cape Wine Auction and again last year, by raising a staggering R800 000 with our 2017 lot, in partnership with The World Residence at Sea.
