Universally known as “Bubbles”, Pieter Ferreira is a sparkling wine legend. Chairman of the Cap Classique Producers’ Association and cellarmaster at Graham Beck, he probably knows more about fizz than anyone in South Africa. Listen to us talk about what he learnt from the French in Champagne, how Springbok rugby legend Jan Boland Coetzee influenced his life, the mysteries of autolysis and Graham Beck’s exiting new project in the UK.
