Simonsig launches Kaapse Vonkel Diamond Rush

Friday, 23 November, 2012
Join the Kaapse Vonkel diamond rush when you buy a bottle of South Africa’s first Méthode Cap Classique and stand a chance to win one of 300 magnums and live the high life on a 5-star Cape Town weekend get-away culminating in an exhilarating winelands helicopter trip to the illustrious Simonsig Wine Estate.
Until the end of January 2013, Kaapse Vonkel lovers can win a 1,5 litre magnum of their favourite Cap Classique instantly by finding a diamond sticker hidden under the foiling of 300 bottles of Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel or Kaapse Vonkel Rosé. Every magnum winner will automatically qualify for the grand prize of an all-inclusive weekend for two including airfares, at the 5-star Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town, a morning of spa treatments, lunch at the spectacular 12 Apostles Hotel overlooking the Atlantic, and a helicopter trip to Simonsig for lunch and the ceremonial Kaapse Vonkel sabrage.

With its energetic mousse of the finest, racy bubbles Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel will add an air of sophistication to everyday moments and is the perfect partner for delicious fresh oysters or decadent desserts this summer.

“Today Kaapse Vonkel is regarded as a ‘lifestyle wine’; a wine not only to drink as a toast or for a celebration. How many wines do you know that you can drink with breakfast? Made in the style of French champagne, it is an excellent local alternative and offers great value for money.” says Simonsig Cellarmaster Johan Malan. 

Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel and Kaapse Vonkel Rosé retail from around R90 per bottle and are available from Simonsig Estate and leading wine outlets nationwide.
