Going, going, going into our community upliftment.

First things first, thank you for an amazing weekend. As soon as our lovely photographer Maree has sorted through the thousands of pictures she took over the two days I will do a little feedback report on the weekend, for now we just want to share the auction results with you.

Every year, over lunch, we auction off some unique or hard to find revolutionary gems.

Here is how it went down this year:
A 3 litre (double Magnum) of 2007 Columella (donated by TheSadie Family Wines) went to Steven Kempenaar for R7000. Steven also made the winning bid of R8000 for the Mullineux Shiraz package (1 x Magnum Syrah, 1 x Magnum Granite Syrah and 1 x Magnum Schist Syrah all 2011 vintage) donated by Mullineux Family Wines.

Donated by AA Badenhorst Family Wines, Adi’s 5 litre Family Red and 3 litre Family White stayed in the Swartland as Eben Sadie bought it for R7000.

For R8000 Dave King became the proud owner of a personalised three litre bottle of Porseleinberg 2011.  

Eight mixed cases of Loire wines (as tasted during the Expert Opinion tasting) sold for a total of R27 500. The successful bidders were Richard Harvey-Jones, Rebecca Tanner, Karl Lambour, Thinus Kruger and Adi Badenhorst. While 6 x Domaine du Pegau Cuvee Da Capo 2010 went to Marc Kent for R18000.

The 875 litre Apollo fermentation and storage egg, filled with Jakkalsfontein Shiraz sold for R23 500 to Roger Clayton. The egg with thanks to Flextank in the USA and importer Anita Rock at Rock Steel Imports.

In total R99 000 was raised and we are excited to start spending it on the upliftment of the children and the greater community of the Swartland. Most of the money we plough back into the Ann Pienaar school in the Paardeberg and the Riebeek School for Special Needs. Click here to see what we have done in the last year, and keep an eye on our page to see how we spend all the money raised this year.

Thank you to all the bidders, spotters, auctioneers and buyers!
