Entrance to Tasting Centre

The House of J.C. Le Roux is the first cellar devoted solely to the production of sparkling wine in South Africa.


Employing the most advanced techniques, a wide selection of sparkling and Méthode Cape Classique wines are produced which includes the South African favourites Le Domaine, La Chanson and Sauvignon Blanc.

The creation of a Cap Classique

Only sparkling wine made in the Champagne region of France may be called Champagne.
South African sparkling wines made in the traditional French method (methode champenoise) are referred to as Methode Cap Classiques or MCC’s.

Wine that has been impregnated with CO2 bubbles is simply termed sparkling wine whereas MCC’s undergo a second fermentation in the bottle to create the sought after bubbles.

A highlight of the tour is the opening of a bottle of bubbly with a French sabre.
This is called Sabrage.
