We have a rather festive idea for you. When visiting Plettenberg Bay this summer, pop into these local wine estates making Méthode Cap Classique—after all what could be better than drinking bubbly while on holiday?
Plettenberg Bay has been an official Wine of Origin district since 2005, and is said to have the most easterly vineyards in the Cape. Below we’ve listed three producers making Méthode Cap Classique that are well worth a try; let us know on Twitter or Facebook if you have any suggestions of your own.
The first estate to produce wine in Plett, Bramon Wines is situated in The Crags, a beautiful, mountainous area. The winery produces an award winning Methode Cap Classique, which the 2008 is said to have ‘melon aromas and hints of green pepper’. Enjoy a golden glass while overlooking the Tsitsikamma mountains.

The latest addition to the Plett Wine Route, the Brut 2012 Méthode Cap Classique hasn’t officially been released just yet. Though visitors can still try it with the ‘bubbly and bilinis special’, or if they like, a cheese platter.

And now for something pink. The estate’s Brut Rosé MCC is made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Enjoy it in the cool confines of the cellar tasting room. Tasting by appointment only.
