The most exciting, impactful and meaningful opportunity landed in my lap last month and I grabbed it with both hands. To be the Cape Wine Auction Director is a privilege and an honour and I look forward to many years of fun filled inspirational events, top class wine lots and strategically challenging trustee meetings. What I look forward to the most is getting to know each and every one of you and working together to make a difference within the Winelands.
The impact to date and the work that Andi has done with our beneficiaries is incredible and I look forward to sharing these stories with you on a monthly basis via our newsletter.
My focus for the next 6 weeks will be to curate amazing lots that I hope will supersede the expectations of our bidders next year. Even more exciting! We are in the process of creating an online ticketing system which links to our website www.thecapewineauction.com that will make booking a seat so much simpler. Ticket sales open 1 October and seats are limited, so follow us on Facebook or Twitter to be the first to know!
Under the guidance of the board of trustees, I look forward to taking the auction to the next level. My door is always open – please contact me with any suggestions, questions or comments.
