The House of GM&AHrens

The House of GM&AHrens

13 June 2014

Where better to enjoy a glass of the finest vintage bubbly than in the beautiful wine lands of Franschhoek. Jaguar South Africa made sure we were treated to absolute style by giving us the chance to cruise to Franschhoek in their ultra luxurious cars, and as if that was not enough, they simply spoiled us with an exclusive bubbly tasting on Sunday at the beautiful House of GM&AHrens where the owners of this exclusive vintage bubbly shared their passion for vintage bubbly with us and showed us exactly what goes into making such a quality Cap Classique.

Owners of GM&AHrens, Albert Ahrens and Gerrit Maritz believe that one should drink at least one bottle of bubbly every day and that is where the seed was planted for the two of them to start this "boutique bubbly" better known as House of GM&AHrens.

The evening started off the real traditional way as one of the guests got to sabrage the first bottle of bubbles (which is a technique for opening a bottle of bubbles with a sabre/sword) and any night filled with friends and bubbles calls for a celebration!

While having a delicious glass of this unique bubbles by the fireplace, all of the guests got to enjoy a private performance by the extremely talented Jimmy Nevis on the piano and it definitely set the mood for a night of exclusivity,style and class as only Jaguar South Africa can provide.

Of course this would not be a proper visit to the House of GM&AHrens without a tour of the underground wine cellar built in 2004 and in Gerrit's words "I knew it would one day be filled with exceptional bubbly". The cellar has since been filled with more than 16 000 bottles of Cap Classique and is truely fabulous!

GM&AHrens are served in most 5 star restaurants and if you want to own your own bottle of this vintage cap classique, you will be lucky enough to receive it in the stunning "Bubbly Hatbox" which was designed exactly 100 years after the first hat box was designed. You get 6 bottles of bubbles in a Bubbly Hatbox and it is designed to fit into the hand luggage space in an aeroplane which means you do not have to go anywhere without your bubbly! After you drank your bubbles, the box becomes a classic hat box or even a gorgeous item as part of the decor in your home!

If you are interested in becoming Gerrit and Albert's bubbly friends as they like to call all their clients, you can contact them at info@gmahrens.co.za or pay them a visit at the House of GM&AHrens located at 25 Uitkyk Street, Franschhoek.

Thanks again to Gerrit, Albert ,Jill Grogor from Zebrasquare PR and of course most importantly, Jaguar South Africa for having us as part of this amazing experience and we will now try to drink a bottle of bubbles a day!
