In the hopes of the drinking ban being lifted in a short while, there is nothing more summery than a cold glass of Methode Cap Classique to be enjoyed in front of the ripping Cape Winelands vines.


Regarded as one of South Africa’s leading Cap Classique producing areas, the Franschhoek Wine Valley Cap Classique route was established a few years ago. The Valley, renowned for producing outstanding Cap Classiques, has a total of 24 producers.

Most of the producers can be visited via the different Franschhoek Wine Tram routes or individually. Farther more, some of the brands are nowhere to be found in South Africa, but on the estate itself, making your visit and tasting vital to any bubbly lover.


Furthermore, with all gathering restrictions, you can now design your own Cap Classique & Champagne festival, at your paste and time. Franschhoek Wine Tram tailored experiences department would gladly assist with a tour that follows the bubbles.
