The Prize

The celebrated Bouchard Finlayson estate produces some of South Africa's most distinguished wines which are not readily available in the UK. There are only a small collection of venues with them on offer. Try these exclusive wines at The Montague on the Gardens, a luxury hotel on the doorstep of Soho and Covent Garden.

This four star Georgian-style townhouse provides exemplary personal service, understated comfort, and - of course - a selection of Bouchard Finlayson's finest. The intimate Terrace Bar & Conservatories are an oasis from London's busy streets.

Seated in one of these beautiful spaces, you will each sample three premium wines from the estate. The hotel's sommelier will engage in a brief discussion of the wines, two red and one white, before allowing you to enjoy the flavours at your leisure. To round off your experience, each wine will be expertly matched with canapés inspired by the nation's cuisine, for an authentic South African experience.

You will also take home a complimentary Bouchard Finlayson corkscrew and wine information booklet.

CharityStars have partnered with a private supplier to bring you this unique and exclusive experience, at least 10% of the funds raised will support the Baby Ava's Foundation.

Conditions:  This experience is inclusive of only what is mentioned above any extra spending is the responsibility of the auction winner. The wine tasting is available Monday to Sunday, between 2pm - 11pm. Note that during November and December, only weekends will be available. This experience is only valid for those aged 18 and above.




The Cause

Ava Helene Atkinson was born on May 26, 2014, but because she was born so early, she experienced many health issues.

Ava was moved to the neo-natal unit where she was put on a ventilator to help her breathe. Hours later, Ava’s condition had not improved, and after discussions with the consultant it was decided that due to the severity of the health issues she had, we as parents had to make the most devastating decision of our lives, together with the care team, to withdraw treatment. Minutes after coming off the ventilator Ava passed away peacefully with her family around her.

Whilst at the hospital we were given a keepsake box in which we were able to have memories of Ava. These precious memories are there for us to look at and cherish. Her keepsake box has brought comfort to us all, so much so that we have decided we would like to put together our own memory boxes for other parents who have suffered the loss of a child.

We have decided to make these keepsake boxes ourselves and hope that these boxes will be looked at for years to come.
