The Cape Winemakers Guild and Strauss & Co. auctioneers are punctuating South Africa’s heritage month with two calendar highlights – the 38th Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild (CWG) Auction which goes live over 30 September to 1 October and alongside it the CWG Protégé Programme Auction from 26 September to 3 October 2022. Together they signify one of South Africa’s longest-standing industries and flagship exports, valued at R10.2-billion per annum, and a space of innovation increasingly growing in diversity, inclusivity and global reputation.

When we consider the ever-changing nature of the world we’re living in, most of us want the steadying comfort of continuity and consistency. You’ll find it in Chateau Libertas, a well-loved, trusted and enduring household name, now nudging 90. What makes it so reassuring is that it’s been a part of our local landscape for what feels like forever. Every generation between our own and our great grandparents’ at least, has known it and loved it.
