'Celebrating Méthode Cap Classique'
is a well researched and beautifully written story on the production of South Africa's premium quality bubbly. The book charts the rise from the early days in the 60’s and 70’s when South Africa had little or no access to the appropriate grape varieties, the machinery, the expertise or assistance from the rest of the world, Out of challenging beginnings, an industry has blossomed beyond any imagining.
That Champagne has survived and endured with the allure that it has retained through the years, is a story that will hold your imagination.
The Cap Classique story is just a continuation of the legend and is equally compelling. We are all working hard in the new South Africa and celebrating life is what we need more of. - Di Burger
