After many years in the bustling business capital, Johannesburg, Charles with his wife, Zelda decided to follow their passion for Champagne by making their own. After much research, the beautiful Elgin Valley in the Western Cape was chosen as the ideal area to start their new ventures. With much vision, an old rundown 33 hectare fruit farm was bought in 2005 and has since been converted to a stunning Cap Classique Wine Estate.
The farm specialises only in grape varieties used to make champagne – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Charles is an avid Francophile who believes deeply in following the classic French style of champagne making and the French idea of terroir being all important for quality wine.
