The Cape Wine Auction (CWA) – one of South Africa’s premier annual charity events, and a much sought after ticket on the social calendar – will take place on 12 February 2022 at Quoin Rock. Further details to follow soon.
Today, because of you, Tashwell Baartman with his ready smile is an award-winning fire fighter working for Stellenbosch Municipality. By Tashwell’s own estimation, he would have become a school drop-out had he not encountered The Pebbles Project and their after-care program.

“I’d do my homework there every afternoon and the staff helped us.” An outing arranged by Pebbles to the Fire Department changed his destiny. “I saw this was a great job – dangerous; I liked it!” he laughs, “and I made it my goal to be a firefighter.”

He got his matric, he got his driver’s license, and began volunteering as a firefighter. In time he was offered a permanent position at Stellenbosch Municipality. This year he won silver at the national Toughest Firefighter Alive competition. Tashwell is a superhero to the children on the farm where he grew up.

“I tell them, you must never give up. I never did. If you get an opportunity, grab it.”

Behind the glittering event of the CWA auction lies a myriad of stories similar to those of Tashwell. Because of you, thousands of children have had hot meals, caring teachers, emotional support, and the courage to dream.

Your generosity in the past has not only delivered some of the best quality lots on auction anywhere in the world, but these in turn generated funds for where it matters most: Edification through Education.

We are delighted to announce that the CWA intends to roar back to life with passion and purpose to host yet another memorable event at Quoin Rock on the 12th of February 2022.

Like Tashwell we believe that hope is a form of courage. We look forward to welcoming everyone back and your continued support and enthusiastic participation.

Yours in celebration and gratitude,
Raymond Ndlovu
Chairman of the Cape Wine Auction Trust
