Sometimes it's hard not to feel like you are swimming in acronyms.
We hear the term MCC swanning around and we don't know if it is the same as Champagne or Sparkling Wine.
"Help" we cry, 'what's in our bubbles??'


Steyn Fullard from Weltevrede Wine Estate is here to solve your abbreviation problems by explaining what MCC stands for.

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.
