The Magic of Rare Bubbles

Posted on Sat November 10, 2018 in Events near De Zeven .

On the 1st and 2nd of December 2018 the socialites of Cape Town will once again gather in front of the Huguenot monument for the annual celebration of ‘The Magic of Bubbles’ at the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival! Every year this event is a smashing hit with the whole of Franschhoek getting booked-up in a flash, but this year a couple of things are different. This year new opportunities are bubbling up.

A chance to win your tickets

The Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival is presented by Sanlam Private Wealth and this year they are feeling very generous. If you buy your tickets online at Webtickets before Thursday the 22nd of November, you stand the chance of getting a full refund for the amount you spent on your tickets!

This means that a couple of lucky Mèthode Cap Classique aficionados out there will be able to sip and compare some of the finest MCCs completely on the house – and of course the wine estates will be pulling out all the stops. From the pioneers of MCC in South Africa to the newest players on the scene – all the biggest names in South African Cape Classique will be there to flaunt their creations, so get online now to stand the chance of enjoying a weekend of bubbles for free. And if you’re one of those people who are going to be hanging around the rare bottles, then we’ll let you in on a little secret… The surprises don’t have to end at the festival grounds. 


An exclusive MCC – only available to De Zeven guests

There is one MCC that you won’t find at the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival – or probably anywhere else for that matter. Our Limoenkloof MCC is delicately crafted just across the road on our farm with the same name. With only a handful of bottles produced every year, this unique MCC is very special to us and we only make it available to a select few – including De Zeven guests.


Enjoy the best of both worlds

The good news is that if you book your stay for the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival at De Zeven, you’ll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds! You’ll be able to eat, drink and mingle your heart out at the festival, and then afterwards retreat to your home-away-from-home in the Banhoek Valley to sip a very special bubbly – produced almost exclusively for you.
