Innovation, benchmarking and the sharing of knowledge spanning over thirty two years of winemaking excellence, is the proud accomplishment of the Cape Winemakers Guild. The Guild, an association of some of South Africa’s finest winemakers, has evolved into a body of 45 members who jointly represent the pinnacle of South African wine achievement. This year, the members of the Guild celebrate their 30th Auction – a showcase of rare and unique wines produced by some of South Africa’s leading winemakers. All experts in their respective fields, Guild members have played a significant role in the development of the South African wine industry. From the making of champion port-style wines and the establishment of Méthode Cap Classique and Cape blends, to the opening up of new, cooler wine regions and the introduction of sustainable, environmentally responsible farming practices, Guild members have always been at the forefront of innovation.
