A story in the making… from passion to profession. Genevieve MCC founder Melissa Genevieve Nelsen spent years deliberating over the creation of Genevieve MCC. Melissa’s mother always encouraged her to be uncompromising and to expand her vision. Melissa once had her sights set on taking to the skies but was unsure how to pursue this aspiration. Following an inspiring chat to her mother she decided to become a pilot. These days, whilst not averse to flying, Melissa prefers to keep her feet firmly on the ground (favouring the countryside!) “It was from this encouragement to think big that Genevieve was created. If I live to enjoy it, why not make it?” Melissa shares.
A few years ago Melissa moved to a boutique wine farm in Bot River and found a small beautiful pocket of Chardonnay. Determined to make unsurpassed quality sparkling wine, from the outset, and to continue to do so each year Melissa attained the guidance of the renowned Gower wine making family making Melissa’s sparkling objectives with this wine achievable.
A refined mousse with fresh zesty citrus aromas, this vibrant mouth-filling MCC reveals the subtlety of great Overberg terroir. Makes an excellent aperitif, it can also be enjoyed with a meal as a fine complement to fish or chicken dishes.
