Cap Classique Producers Association

The Cap Classique Producers Association (CCPA) was established in 1992 by a group of like-minded producers who share a passion for bottle-fermented sparkling wines, made according to the traditional method (Méthode Champenoise). Their version is to promote South Africa’s premium Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) wines, as well as the common interests of the producers. They also intend to establish MCC as a generic term to describe these wines, ensuring that it is recognized both locally and in the international marketplace.

The Association is constantly striving to improve the quality standards of all the members’ wines made according to this classic bottle-fermentation method. Part of achieving this goal is the establishment of technical criteria and organoleptic approval of base wines.

Significantly, all the serious producers of Cap Classique are members of the Association and they share a common objective of cultural and educational upliftment of the community.
