What is Méthode Cap Classique (MCC)?
Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) is the term for South African sparkling wines crafted using traditional methods. Coined in 1992 due to restrictions on the use of 'Champagne,' MCC signifies a premium category in South Africa. This term emerged in response to the prohibition on using 'Champagne' and 'Champenoise' for any product other than the bottle-fermented wine from the Champagne region in France.

Sparkling wine (or MCC) is renowned for its effervescence and celebratory nature. It's characterized by its lively bubbles, which are a result of carbon dioxide trapped within the wine during the fermentation process. This unique feature creates a refreshing and invigorating sensation on the palate. Sparkling wine is often associated with special occasions and festivities, making it a popular choice for toasts and celebrations.

Spend the day exploring this unique sparkling wine category and try some of the South Africa's, and the worlds, best Méthode Cap Classique wines.
