Early Autumn is creeping around the corner slowly and the lovely people from Wine-Style have just the event to wind down summer. The Wine-Style Summer Winedown 2015 has it all. Gorgeous setting, all the wines you could wish for and the makings of a most fantastic, enjoyable and wine-filled day out. Block out 20-21 March in your diaries, because you don’t want to miss out on this indulgent day of relaxation.
For the most part, I feel that day-to-day winos don’t really think much about wine auctions. Personally, I’m not too phased by the amounts spent on wine at auctions, it’s just that I don’t have that type of cash to spend (at least, not all at once), so the word “auction” inspires a mental separation of sorts. A bit of “that’s nice” and then I move on to something more relevant to me. Like the bottle of bubbly in my fridge. I started taking notice of the Cape Winemaker’s Guild auction last year when I attended my first CWG Auction Showcase. It was exciting, engaging and excellent. It’s almost time for the 2014 CWG Showcase, so let me tell you a bit more about what to expect.
