The best MCC, French champagne and gourmet treats for one weekend only!

Please note Tickets for the festival on Saturday are sold out, but limited tickets for Sunday’s event are still available

Once again, the marquee on the lawns at the Huguenot Monument will be a hive of activity at “The Magic of Bubbles” Cap Classique & Champagne Festival. One of the most anticipated highlights on the Cape’s social calendar, this annual festival attracts bubbly aficionados from far and wide to sip and savour top-notch MCCs and the finest French champagne.

Burst the Bubble

Brands such as Anthonij Rupert Wyne, Avondale, Black Elephant Vintners, Boschendal Wines, Steenberg Vineyards and Haute Cabrière (home of Pierre Jourdan) will be on hand to  showcase their premium MCCs, and Franschhoek restaurants that have gained a reputation as some of the best in the country will be presenting their delicious dishes to complement the bubblies. These include Bread & Wine, The Restaurant at Grande Provence, Mont Rochelle, Huguenot Fine Chocolates, and L’Ermitage.
