nederburg_auctionTotal sales were just under R7.6 million for 10 506 litres of wine at this year’s Nederburg Auction – average price per litre equating to R740, an all-time record surpassing the previous high of R597 achieved in 2014.

Tsogo Sun was the top buyer, with a total spend of just over R1 million, followed by retailer SPAR and then luxury safari group Singita. There was an 11% increase in overall participation year-on-year, the result of more private buyers entering the auction, this segment accounting for 22% of sales.

Dry white sold for an average of R443 per litre (or R332.25 per 750ml bottle) and dry red for an average of R894 per litre (or R670.50 per 750ml bottle).
