In 1983 their founder Graham Beck purchased Madeba Farm in Robertson and in 1990 Pieter joined the team and the building of the cellar commenced. The very first Graham Beck Cap Classique sparkling wine was produced under the stars, as the cellar’s roof had not yet been completed.
In 1993 the maiden vintage was released and the very next year the Graham Beck Brut NV was chosen as the celebratory drink of choice at the inauguration of South Africa’s first democratically elected head of state, Nelson Mandela. This was merely the first in a long list of honours, accolades and awards that this prestigious portfolio of iconic sparkling wines would receive. In the three decades that followed Graham Beck would be enjoyed by princes, presidents, rock stars and, of course, many, many wine lovers across the globe.
The release of a Magnum bottle heralds a celebratory milestone, a significant or joyous occasion and the perfect opportunity to celebrate moments that matter. This could not be more apt than in the launch of this exclusive Graham Beck 30th Celebratory 1.5L Magnum.

As an elegant and timeless Cap Classique, it promises to be a sought-after collector’s item and ‘reflection of yesteryear’ in any bubbly lover’s own sparkling wine journey.
With this special cuvée Graham Beck has come full circle. It is both a tribute to the tireless pursuit of the perfect bubble, and a joyous toast to a future brimming with exciting prospects to continuously raise the bar and innovate.
“During their 30 years’ of finetuning and focusing their Cap Classique craft their dedication and attention to detail has resulted in Graham Beck being recognized as an internationally recognised frontrunner in this exacting and exhilarating style of wine,” explains Pieter.
Signifying the values and vision of their founder, Graham Beck, this exclusive and unique cuvée symbolises so much more than a superb Cap Classique. It also pays homage to their pioneering quest to become champions of environmental conservation and community upliftment, demonstrating integrity and authenticity in everything their undertake. However, without the unwavering support from all those who have encouraged and sustained them along the way, this epic evolution of the bubble would never have been possible.
