Kickstart the festive season on a fashionably high note at the annual Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival. The 2019 showcase is titled The Magic of Bubbles and is presented by Sanlam Private Wealth.

Huguenot Monument

One of SA’s premier social calendar highlights, Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival 2019 takes place over the weekend of 30 November and 1 December at the Huguenot Monument.

And, with the Prosecco category booming in SA, for the first time ever, you’ll find the world’s number one selling Prosecco, Mionetto, participating at this year’s event.

Mionetto has been making high quality Prosecco since 1887 in the North of Italy and the house has become synonomous with a tradition of excellence and style. Mionetto wine uses the Italian Charmat verification process which allows for a more crisp, light and delicate wine versus the classic French Champenoise method.

So, Mionetto prosecco is set to sparkle at the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival 2019. Prosecco’s are lively, fruity, white wines that come from a protected area called the Prosecco DOC (which is quite close to Venis). Mionetto grapes are known for their uniquely floral and fruity notes.
