The House of J.C. Le Roux, South Africa’s leading sparkling wine producer and first dedicated cellar with French Huguenot roots dating back to 1704, is a world-class destination in the heart of Devon Valley in Stellenbosch. Here passion and craftsmanship merge to create an exuberant range of sparkling wines that express their individuality and inner vibrancy to suit every taste, mood and occasion. It all begins with the careful selection of grape varieties for their unique characteristics and flavour profiles allowing each sparkling wine in the Vivante range to express its own effervescent flavour enlivened by cascades of vivacious bubbles.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from various established vineyards in the Western Cape region planted at altitudes ranging from 50 to 300 metres above sea level. The white and red grape varieties are selected from different vineyard sites to provide the diverse building blocks needed for the unique flavours, aromas and complexity of the carefully blended base wine.

in the cellar : This sparkling wine is made of a blend of carefully selected white and red grape varieties, comprising Sauvignon Blanc (60%), White Muscadel (15%), Pinotage(20%), and Shiraz (5%). The grapes were harvested by hand at 21.5 - 23.7° Balling and placed in small baskets to prevent bruising. The colour was extracted from the skins during the first 24 hours in the cellar. Fermentation is stopped by lowering the temperature to 0°C when the alcohol level of 7.5 vol % has been reached leaving 75 g/l of natural grape sugar in the wine. The sparkle is created by infusing the base wine with CO2
