Our Story

About Graham Beck

When our founder Graham Beck began his journey crafting South Africa’s premier sparkling wine known as Cap Classique, his goal was simple: to introduce a premium bubbly that’s always worthy of the moment.

Sparkling wine is the perfect drink to enhance any moment and not just for celebrations. Yet, what is designed to delight can sometimes cause unnecessary stress. Between too many choices, high prices, and labels that are hard to understand, it can be hard to know where to even start.

Affectionately known as “Mr. Bubbles,” Pieter Ferreira is our founding cellar master, honing Graham Beck’s signature style since 1991. Now, as head of the Cap Classique association, his exuberance and dedication to sparkling wines knows no bounds. In 2010, and after 12 years of mentorship, Pieter passed the torch to our cellar master, Pierre de Klerk. Pierre’s talent and attention to detail shine through in all Graham Beck wines.

“Crafting world-class sparkling wines is a process that demands your undivided attention, passion, dedication, and creativity.”
