Genevieve MCC

Méthode Cap Classique wines continue to grow in stature. This 100% Chardonnay fizz has gorgeous tropical flavours; pineapple, mango and ripe peach - it is a truly aromatic expression of Chardonnay. With its tiny, persistent bubbles this is an ideal aperitif or serve with roasted turbot, fennel and preserved lemons.

Inspiration and Creation of Genevieve MCC

Genevieve MCC was inspired by the creator’s passion for good quality Méthode Cap Classique. Founder, Melissa Genevieve Nelsen, pursued her passion into the winemaking industry to develop the beautiful Cap Classique we know today. Melissa strives to create wines that not only please the palate but also evoke emotions and transport individuals to a world of sensory delight.

Discovery of Terroir in Bot River

The search for the perfect terroir and quality grapes led Melissa to Bot River, and there she discovered a beautiful pocket of Chardonnay, located in the Van der Stel Pass. The first vintage was produced in 2008 and released in 2010. After a very successful year, Melissa decided to double production and make this her business.

Establishment of a Home for Genevieve MCC

In 2017, a combined need of wanting to create a home for Genevieve MCC to host visitors and a fondness of the valley lead to purchasing a farm. Melissa and the team continue to develop the farm with the same passion as she makes the Genevieve MCC, with lots of love, hard work and time for pleasure to enjoy where they are and who they


Tropical notes, pineapple, mango and ripe peach, a really aromatic expression of Chardonnay. On the palate the wine is dry, pronounced fruit intensity and showing tiny, persistent bubbles.


This would make a lovely aperitif or serve with turbot roasted on the bone with fennel and preserved lemons. The flavours need to be simple, fresh and clean to match this wine.
