At the winery Graham Beck, the cellar master Pieter Ferreira makes sure to intervene as little as possible in the natural processes; rather, the authentic essence of the grapes as well as the terroir should develop and be easily recognizable in the finished wine. Pieter Ferreira has been a cellarer since 1990 and is generally considered to be the best South African sparkling wine producer – it is said that he has ‘bubbles in his blood’. The passion for sparkling wines such as the famous Méthode Cap Classique can also be found in the person Graham Beck himself who was often called ‘South Africa’s Sparkling Wine King’ during his lifetime. Pieter Ferreira always tries to make sure the various microclimates and the various types of soil suit the planted vines. The unique, cool and arid climate of the Robertson region combined with the rich limestone soils produce wines with worldwide appeal and star quality.
