The excitement mounts as the date for The Bubbly Festival draws near and Jozi’s Cap Classique lovers prepare their taste buds for a scintillating feast of champers and good food- while listening to live music at The Park, House of Events on 7. The event will be quite cosmopolitan, in that it will feature some of South Africa’s best MCC wines, gorgeous French Champagne and sexy Italian Prosecco. Tickets include a glass and a whopping 10 tastings- you can’t miss this! Diarise: Friday, May 18- Sunday 20.
Local MCC producers at this year’s event include Anthonij Rupert Wines, who will present the L’Ormarins Brut Classique N/V, L’Ormarins Brut Vintage Rosé 2013, L’Ormarins Blanc de Blanc 2012 and L’Ormarins Brut Classique Rosé N/V; Bon Courage who will show the Jacques Bruére 2011 Brut Reserve, 2011 Blanc de Blanc and a 2011 Cuveé Rosé Brut; Genevieve MCC (a boutique Blanc de Blanc, harvested from a small block of Chardonnay in Botriver, Overburg); Pierre Jourdan Brut and Belle Rose from Haute Cabrière; Spier with both their Secret Sparkling – Non Vintage and Spier Signature MCC as well as bubbles from Krone.
There’s also Silverthorn which is among only a handful of producers that have dedicated their expertise solely to the production of premium MCCs and who will show the Silverthorn The Green Man 2015, Silverthorn The Genie Rose NV and the Silverthorn Jewel Box 2014. The last is a new vintage from this estate and the Bubbly Festival will allow festival-goers to be among the first to taste this bubbly.
Also, in the line-up is the Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel which was the first South African wine made according to the traditional method, known in South Africa, as Méthode Cap Classique and Tanzanite, made by one of South Africa’s first female sparkling wine specialists Melanie van der Merwe.
Tickets cost R380 per person and include a glass and 10 tasting tickets. Bookings can be made via www.webtickets.co.za or at the door on the day.
