We’re joined by Pieter “Bubbles” Ferreira for our Graham Beck Gourmet Dinner on 30 September to celebrate the arrival of Spring. Affectionately known as “Mr Bubbles”, Pieter Ferreira eats, drinks and breathes bubbles! Pieter has been with the team from the very first vintage and has been instrumental in cementing Graham Beck as one of the world’s leading producers of premium Méthode Cap Classique style sparkling wines.
Pieter’s love affair with Cap Classique style sparkling wines started early on in his winemaking career. The bubbly bug bit hard and wouldn’t let go as his innate admiration for the universal charm of this challenging style of wine took hold. He credits his microbiology and plant science background with helping him to understand and appreciate the finer nuances of crafting Cap Classique. Numerous vintages in Champagne, France, and other top wine-producing regions across the globe have provided plenty of opportunities for Pieter to hone his natural affinity for this specialised and exacting craft.
We’ll be sampling the following sparkling wines from Graham Beck on the evening, each paired with a dish:
- Graham Beck Brut Rosé
- Graham Beck Brut
- Graham Beck Brut Blanc De Blancs
- Graham Beck Pinot Noir Rosé Vintage
- Graham Beck Bliss Nectar
