Celebrate The Royal Wedding At The Bubbly Festival

The Bubbly Festival – Joburg’s celebration of South Africa’s finest Cap Classiques – pops up in Hyde Park for three days this weekend and looks set to wow Gauteng bubbly lovers.
With over 26 MCC estates showcasing their best, the festival will host a number of champagne and prosecco houses, Toast on Tap – which will be serving a couple of beer offerings, The Duchess – a non-alcoholic gin & tonic, and even a Cointreau stand.

The organisers have lined up some impressive estates including Graham Beck, who will showcase their Blanc de Blanc, Brut and Brut Rosé; Anthonij Rupert Wines, with their L’Ormarins range; Bon Courage; Genevieve MCC; Pierre Jourdan Brut and Belle Rose from Haute Cabrière; Spier and Krone. Also Silverthorn who will show The Green Man 2015, The Genie Rose NV and The Jewel Box 2014, which is a new vintage from this estate – so festival-goers will be among the first to taste it.

Also, in the mix is the Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel which was the first South African wine made according to the traditional method, known in South Africa, as Méthode Cap Classique and Tanzanite, made by one of South Africa’s first female sparkling wine specialists Melanie van der Merwe.

To add to the occasion, festival-goers can enjoy a selection of fabulous foods including poke bowls, meze platters, sushi, oysters and pizza. Plus, there is also a cake stand for the sweet tooth lovers – a nod to this weekend’s Royal Wedding which will be shown live on a big screen in the venue on Saturday.

And – as if that wasn’t enough – there will also be live music from the talented Jacques Lagesse as well as the brilliant Veronique Lalouette (whom placed fourth in M-Net’s Idols season three competition).
