A veritable celebration in every sip, Methode Cap Classique (MCC) is South Africa’s version of champagne. Using the same method, this bubbly is made by creating a second fermentation in the bottle. The result? A sparkling wine that’s every bit as splendid as its French cousin but at a fraction of the price.
As the fastest growing wine category in the country, doubling its production every five years, it’s not just South Africans who are reaping the benefits of our outstanding MCC, with just under a third of our bottles popped outside of the country each year.
A wonderfully versatile companion to a range of dishes, from breakfast to after-dinner desserts, MCC is best served ice cold and in the proper glassware to maximise its features and finer points.
And if you’re looking to start the season in style, why not enjoy both of summer’s favourite sips at one sizzling-hot event?
The Wade Bales Cap Classique and Gin Affair takes place at the Grand Africa Café & Beach in Granger Bay on Saturday October 27 from 1pm to 5pm and Sunday 28 from 1pm to 5pm. With over 70 of South Africa’s premium MCCs awaiting you, as well as 40 craft and international gins to taste, producers will be present to share their knowledge and unique insight into what makes their particular tipple irresistible.
Tickets are available via QUICKET at R350 per person, with limited Early Bird Tickets at R250 per person (until sold out). This includes a complimentary champagne glass, unlimited access to all MCC and gin products featured on the day and six fresh oysters. Sushi and pizza will be for sale on the day.
