Let Us Toast to Giving and The Cape Wine Auction 2024

The Cape Wine Auction, in which Paul Clüver Family Wines plays a profound role in offering a barrel of wine to be auctioned, as well as having Paul Clüver Jnr as chairman of its board of trustees, raising R9 635 000 for the various winelands children’s charities they support. Since its inception 10 years ago, the Cape Wine Auction has raised over R130m for several charities providing educational and nutritional needs for children in the Cape’s wine regions.

Paul Clüver Jnr says that he and the other Cape Wine Auction trustees were overwhelmed by the generosity shown by those attending the bidding at an energetic and stylish event held at Muratie Estate in Stellenbosch.

“There were some stunning lots put forward, from an immersive experience of the wines and places of the Constantia Wine Valley to a week’s stay on an island off the coast of Mozambique,” says Clüver. “These lots were all donated and then bid on by people committed to supporting the Cape Wine Auction’s cause of improving the lives of children in the Cape Winelands who are the very future of our regions and our industry. It was an honour to see the auction’s income almost hit the R10m mark, one which will soon be crossed, I am sure.”
