Some truly amazing wines will be on offer, not excluding non-wine and fun items like a dinner party at home with South Africa's best chef, various dinners out and wineland stay overs to mention but a few.
As most of you in the wine industry already know, Niels Verburg (owner and Winemaker of Luddite Wines) was out camping with his son, Kim, and 6 other children 5 weekends ago. They were shot at while they were sleeping. Niels got a shot in his hand but his 5-year old son got the brunt of the attack. The medical bills so far have been astronomical and this family really needs the industry's help right now. We are hosting an auction in aid of this fund at the Lord Charles Hotel on the 2nd December at 18h30. There are some truly amazing wines to buy. We also have some other fun Items to bid for : dinner party at home with south africa's best chef, Dinner out, stay overs to name but a few. If you would like to book for the auction, why not get a table of 10 great people together, enjoy a wonderful meal and a few glasses of wine and bid for a worthy cause.
