Diarise: Wade Bales Cap Classique and Gin Affair

MCC. Gin. The Grand. Welcome to The Wade Bales Cap Classique and Gin Affair! I’ve actually never heard of the Wade Bales Society so I looked them up. The website doesn’t have an about page, but they appear to be a premiere wine club and e-comm store who are pretty jacked up (think newsletters, mobile app and months you can skip if you’re on a tight budget). All good things that I can get behind!

Wade Bales Cap Classique & Gin Affair 2018

What better way to celebrate the start of Summer than by enjoying the finest bubbly, sampling the coolest craft and international gins all set on a private beach?

With over 75 of South Africa’s premium MCC’s awaiting you (all made in the traditional Methode Champenoise style), you’ll get to enjoy the likes of Graham Beck, Steenberg, Simonsig, Tanzanite, Boschendal and Silverthorn, to name a few.

Or if gin is more your speed, celebrate the fastest growing spirit in the world with 50 craft and international gins to taste, while the producers share their knowledge and unique insights into what makes their “liquid” irresistible.


The Details

  • Who: You (and me!)
  • Where: The Grand Africa Café & Beach

Although I’m not your typical Grand clientele, I love the venue. It’s incredible to be able to enjoy a glass of wine with uninterrupted views of the sea. It’s the kind of place I can go to and mind my business. Close to town, convenient parking, good service – that’s all I need.

“We want to showcase the best South Africa has to offer alongside world class international brands. Two of the season’s hottest tipples, together with a great crowd at Cape Town’s trendy Grand Africa Café & Beach – it’s going to be an experience you don’t want to miss!” – Wade Bales
