Formula E experience & 1966 & 1968 Tabernacle Wines
THE LOT INFO
Gear up for an exhilarating weekend with two tickets to Cape Town’s inaugural ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. Take in the excitement of the day from the Premium Trackside Lounge. This spectacular airconditioned, glass-fronted marquee stretches alongside the track on the corner of Fritz Sonnenberg and Granger Bay Boulevard, offering a direct view to the pit lane exit.
Enjoy the racing action from a private trackside viewing deck or take up your dedicated grandstand seat situated adjacent to the hospitality lounge. Indulge in the gourmet food offered throughout the day, complimented by a premium bar service to enjoy at your leisure. This is our premium local hospitality offering which is bound to excite the senses.
Compliment your experience with one night for four guests at Newmark Hotel’s Queen Victoria Hotel & Manor House, one of Cape Town’s most distinguished boutique hotels where classic elegance meets contemporary design. Located in the city’s historic precinct near to the V&A Waterfront, this five-star hotel’s prime location offers convenient access to outstanding amenities and a serene escape from the outside hustle and bustle.
Ending off this generous lot is an experience to tantalise even the most experienced oenophile – two bottles and an exclusive tasting for 12 guests, of wines exhumed from the Nederburg Tabernacle. The recently revamped Tabernacle in Stellenbosch is a hallowed place amongst the wine fraternity and the lucky few who have been admitted. An underground wine library established in 1979, it archives some of South Africa’s greatest vinous treasures and has come to serve as a most precious historical winemaking and cultural resource. Today thousands of bottles are stored under ideal ageing conditions and from this significant collection, the successful bidder will receive a bottle of 1966 George Spies Cabernet Sauvignon and a bottle of 1968 George Spies Cabernet Sauvignon. Today it is unlikely there are more than 24 pristine bottles in existence.
