Oldenburg Vineyards, situated in the picturesque Banghoek Valley, is honoured to be part of the AfrAsia Bank Cape Wine Auction 2016 and is making a difference by contributing a signficant Lot for one fortunate bidder.
"The Oldenburg Lot" includes a three-night stay for eight guests in the magnificent Oldenburg Homestead and a limited release 5-litre Oldenburg Cabernet Sauvignon 2012. Also included is a private tutored Cabernet Sauvignon Vertical tasting with the vineyard's talented winemaker, Philip Costandius followed by a private wine pairing 5-course dinner by Chef Craig Cormack for eight guests at the Homestead. "The Oldenburg Lot" is valued at R70 000.
Spacious and elegantly proportioned, the 200 year old Homestead has been meticulously restored, modernised and opened up to create a seamless flow of exquisitely furnished indoor and outdoor spaces for relaxed family living and sophisticated entertaining. Surrounded by a well-established garden, olive groves and vineyards, the double-storey home has deep verandas, a large swimming pool and a sleek, glass-walled gym from which to appreciate the dramatic Groot Drakenstein Mountains. It comes with a resident manager – a trained butler with sharply honed concierge skills – and two housekeepers.
The AfrAsia Bank Cape Wine Auction 2016 will take place at the Klein Constantia Wine Estate on the 12th and 13th February 2016 this year. This event is described as a rock star party for a great cause and it gives guests the chance to bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The aim of this event is to raise significant funds to support education in the winelands of South Africa. To date, this event has raised in excess of R17 million, which, without offset or deduction, was distributed to thirteen charities actively working with education, from infant to adult, across the Western Cape.
