Silverthorn Wines produces an exciting range of top end, Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) wines, which have undergone a natural, secondary fermentation in the bottle.
Silverthorn Wines is among only a handful of producers who have dedicated their expertise solely to the production of this elegant style of wine. We are a proud member of the Cap Classique Association, an independent organisation which collectively supports and markets Cap Classique wines, and of course a member of the prestigious Cape Winemakers Guild. Silverthorn’s terroir, with its rocky, lime-rich, shale soils similar to the famous Champagne soils in France coupled with our mature Chardonnay vineyards ensure the time is ripe for Silverthorn’s grand entry into the world of sparkling wine.
Currently Silverthorn’s production stands at a total of 44,000 bottles, with steady, consistent growth on the horizon. Our primary aim is to continue to produce some of the finest South African sparkling wines, to build on our Platter 5*, Six Nations Wine Challenge – Wine Of The Show and Tim Atkin – Overall Sparkling Wine Of The Year.
