Amorim Cap Classique Challenge

The Amorim Cap Classique Challenge is South Africa’s leading event affording recognition to the country’s astounding array of naturally-fermented sparkling wines, known as Méthode Cap Classique.

Held annually since 2002, the Cap Classique Challenge shares the same values as Amorim Cork, namely a commitment to excellence and the relentless pursuit of ultimate quality in a quality natural product. Judging is conducted in July by a team of experts, with the competition results announced in September. Entry is not limited to members of the Cap Classique Producers Association.
