THE CAPE WINE AUCTION 2022 | R12 MILLION RAISED!


This brings the total raised to date since 2014 to a staggering R117 Million. A massive thank you to each and everyone who contributed to this success!

The Cape Wine Auction 2022, in partnership with Mastercard, raised R12 215 000 for charity at this year’s event, and has now accumulated over R117 million since the first auction in 2014.

Held at the luxurious Quoin Rock Wine Estate in Stellenbosch on Saturday, February 12, this year’s auction saw guests bidding generously for a catalogue of once-in-a-lifetime lots.

The day’s highest bid of R1.2 million was for Lot 17, which included a three-night getaway for eight people on &Beyond Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, as well as return private charter flights from Cape Town or Johannesburg and scenic helicopter transfers from the lodge and Vilanculos. It was sponsored by Spier wine farm.

Other fiercely-contested lots included the Best of British Lot 18 (golf, horseracing and tickets to a Premier League football game), Lot 7 Celebrating Goodness with wine, dining and travel experiences in South Africa and France and Lot 14, a week-long stay in Tuscany.

The Gift of the Giving lots also raised a significant amount of money. These are essentially straight-forward donations to charitable causes with no prize/holiday/experience in return and consisted of five R10 000 donations, five R25 000 donations, five R50 000 donations and one donation of R100 000.
The Cape Wine Auction is regarded as one of the most significant international wine charity auctions ever conceived in South Africa, uniting the industry around a single goal of raising money for education.

The auction has created a benchmark in philanthropy with 100 percent of proceeds managed by the Cape Wine Auction Trust and distributed amongst carefully selected beneficiaries.

Says Darielle Robertson, director of The Cape Wine Auction: “We were delighted with this year’s results especially given the tough economic times we are going through. The monies raised means the Trust can continue its invaluable work with our beneficiaries, all of whom are dedicated to improving the education and lives of children in the Cape winelands.

“A big thank you to all our partners, especially Mastercard, and to those who bid so generously for the amazing lots that were kindly donated.”

Says Kamini Redhi, Director for Marketing and Communications at Mastercard Sub-Saharan Africa: “We were delighted by the response to this year’s auction, which aligns with our brand purpose of connecting everyone to priceless possibilities. Being part of such an exclusive event – one that harnesses the power of doing good to transform children’s lives through educational and social support – is a great honour.”
