Bonnievale, South Africa

Silverthorn Wines is among only a handful of producers who have dedicated their expertise solely to the production of this elegant style of wine. They are a proud member of the Cap Classique Association and a member of the prestigious Cape Winemakers Guild. Silverthorn’s terroir, with its rocky, lime-rich, shale soils similar to the famous Champagne soils in France coupled with our mature Chardonnay vineyards ensure Silverthorn’s entry into the world of sparkling wine.

Silverthorn Wines produces an exciting range of top end, Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) wines, which have undergone a natural, secondary fermentation in the bottle.

Silverthorn has become synonymous with their ethos of Afropean synergy, combining old world European heritage and knowledge; and their contemporary African environment and culture. The story-telling and imagery, with each product they have released, has become an important Silverthorn feature.
