On the fifth day of Christmas...

Some say a good bubbly is worth more than gold.
There are rumours in Middle Earth that it could possibly be more valuable than 5 gold rings.



Fizz, sparkle, froth, bubbles, whatever you call it, there is no denying the joy of pouring a glass of chilled bubbly and watching the magic rise in your flute. But why and how do these bubbles develop? Lizelle Gerber from Boschendal Wine Estate has the answer to rule them all.

The wine.co.za December Spotlight has exploded in a flurry of bubbles and festive cheer.

We wanted to make this month count and so we gathered four of South Africa’s best Methode Cap Classique (MCC) makers as well as our resident bubbly maniac, Zwai Gumede, in a hot tub for corker of a day.
Complete with bubbles, bubbly and sparkling personalities all round, we’ve got answers to all your bubbling questions as well as an insight into what these MCC makers will be doing over Christmas.
