Franschhoek Cap Classique Route

Regarded as one of South Africa’s leading Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) producing areas, the Franschhoek Wine Valley has relaunched its MCC route, adding a few more producers to its already celebrated line up. The Valley, renowned for producing outstanding Méthode Cap Classiques, has a total of 18 producers, which includes newcomers Grande Provence, Plaisir de Merle and La Motte.

Franschhoek has been challenging other wine-producing areas in South Africa, with great strides in quality in recent years, and is proud to have many of the most innovative and progressive producers in the country among its wineries. The winemakers responsible for producing these superb MCC’s range from Old World to New World thinking, resulting in a diverse range of wines.

The relaunched route extends from Backsberg all the way through to Franschhoek Pass Winery, the home of Morena, giving visitors to the area an all round experience of what Franschhoek has to offer.
