Lovers of bubbly can delight in this latest announcement from Franschhoek Tourism, as they put Cap Classique further on the map and firmly on our radars with the launch of a reignited route that features top estates open for interactive tastings and ultimate appreciation of local sparkling wines.
Perfectly timed with the start of Spring and International Cap Classique day, September 1st 2022 sees us raising glasses for a ceremonious ‘cheers’ to all things Cap Classique. It also marks the official launch of the route and a jam-packed few days showcasing the very finest producers of an impressive array of 19 estates, conveniently located in the abundant valley of Franschhoek.
Epicureans can expect household names such as Colmant, Le Lude, Haute Cabriere, L’Ormarins and new additions to the route, such as Klein Goederust’s ‘Nomaroma’, making the route itinerary much more than you could fit into a day.
With an evolved offering that spans the first week of September, 1st to 4th, guests are invited to visit participating wine estates in a journey that includes award-winning flights of bubbly, as well as the very best food and wine pairings from the valley.
Ruth McCourt, CEO has this to say of the FWV Cap Classique route and planned celebrations “Spring is not the only reason to enjoy Cap Classique… There’s plenty of reason to enjoy a glass of bubbles every day; for breakfast, lunch, dinner- or all three! It’s fantastic to see 50 years of CapClassique heritage culminating in our valley and further highlighting the world-class local producers that proudly call this region home. Each farm has its unique offerings available to mark the occasion and we encourage all to join in the fun and support local.”
