Toast to Love with Bubbly

Many people think of bubbly as champagne. In Hout Bay and much of South Africa, Méthode Cap Classique, better known as MCC, is the South African version of champagne. The only difference between the South African bubbly and the famous French alternative is that Champagne grapes must be grown in the Champagne region of France. In contrast, South African MCCs use local grapes, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Made with love and care using the same traditional French method, known as methode champenoise.

This bubbly wine first appeared in South Africa less than 50 years ago, using grapevines dating back to the 1700s.

Drink Local

The two Hout Bay local vineyards are Ambeloui producing some of the finest MCC, and Hout Bay Vineyards.

South African MCC is a sensory experience.

MCC is one of the most versatile wines as it can be enjoyed with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It pairs well with dishes such as oysters, canapés, cheeses, chicken, and fish. For curries and desserts, choose the sweeter MCCs for the best experience.

South Africa has a diverse environment that enables producing a variety of wines, and MCC will make any day an occasion.
