Our spring wine tours were recently featured in the online magazine Glass of Bubbly.
The magazine is, as you can guess, focussed on sparkling wines so what must have caught there eye was some of the excellent sparkling wines made in South Africa. They use the same winemaking techniques as in Champagne but here in South Africa they call it MCC, for Methode Cap Classique. That means, for instance, that the wine has its second fermentation in bottle and is aged for a certain time before being released to the market.
South Africa has actually received quite a lot of attention for their quite excellent sparkling wines.
But sparkling is not the only thing they do, and is not the only thing that is featured on our wine tour. South Africa has become one of the most exciting wine countries in the New World producing some excellent wines, both red and white.
Thank you to a Glass of Bubbly for having featured our South African wine tour! The South Africans certainly do make some bubbly worthy of more international recognition.
Here you can find all the details of the upcoming wine and food tour to South Africa.
