Le Lude MCC

Le Lude is a family winery situated on the edge of Franschhoek town, South Africa specialising in bottle fermented sparkling wines – Cap Classique. The French Huguenots planted vines and made wine in The Franschhoek Valley as far back as 1693.

We uphold the strictest traditions and standards. At Le Lude we have a deep respect for tradition, not just for the sake of it, but also to be truly inspired by the lessons we learnt from history.

We demand and create innovation while pursuing perfection as we project ourselves towards the future. We strive to blend a unique style and elegance while paying careful attention to detail.

Le Lude is also the first cellar to produce Agrafe (Tirage Liège) Cap Classique.
