Get ready for one of SA’s most talked about, and prestigious wine industry charity auctions; guaranteed to get the airwaves talking in more ways than one. Regarded as the most extraordinary international wine event to be hosted in South Africa, the Cape Wine Auction 2017 takes place within the spectacular Franschhoek Wine Valley on 10 and 11 February.
The South African roots of world-renowned neuroscientist Professor Mark Solms brought him back home in 2002 to revitalise the historic Delta wine estate … and to fundamentally rethink Cape wine-making traditions in the process.
Solms assumed custodianship of the 320-year-old estate with a vision that went much deeper than re-establishing its vineyards and cellars. He also wanted to do something about the legacy of his European forebears (who had settled in the Cape six generations before) and thereby address the pressing social and economic problems facing South Africa today.
Shadowed by the Dassenberg mountains, the mild Franschhoek valley is the perfect canvas for winemaker Wynand Grobler to create a portfolio of outstanding Franschhoek wines. The flagship range, Paulina’s Reserve, proudly bears the name of original owner, Paulina de Villiers.
The flagship, a king among South African red wines, is The Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon. This distinctive South African wine, as well as the renowned Paulina's Reserve and Rickety Bridge classic range, have received several accolades at South Africa wine shows and around the world.
Our estate wines are made with pride in provenance and humility in craftsmanship. We strive to make wines that are juicy yet structured, elegant, and above all authentic to the place they are grown.
