"Come quickly, I'm tasting the stars"
Did you know... Champagne dates back centuries to the days when Benedictine monk Dom Pérignon was the cellar master at the Abbey of Hautvillers, assigned to oversee wine production. One of his duties was to try to prevent wine from becoming bubbly, which at the time, was thought to ruin the wine. He and his fellow monks altered the grapes used in the wine production and eliminated skins to see if that made a difference... the rest, as they say is history
What is Cap Classique?
Ever since French settlers arrived in the Cape, French winemaking styles and techniques have inspired South African wine makers to produce world leading wines. The first bottle of Cap Classique, a South African sparkling wine made in the same method as Champagne, was produced by Simonsig in 1951. Now, there are over 190 Cap Classiques produced in the Cape every year.
Fall in love with Cap Classique
We fell in love with Cap Classique whilst living and working in South Africa. After moving back to London, we couldn't find anywhere that stocked Cap Classique.
Sharing our love of Cap Classique in the UK, whilst helping support our favourite wine producers has turned from a passion project into a fledgling business.
We are so excited to share the love with you.
