The 2017 Cape Wine Auction

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.

Solms-Delta Wine Estate

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.
