History

In 1982, the brand and the House of J.C. Le Roux was established, making us the first and only dedicated sparkling wine cellar in South Africa.

Grounded in innovation, the cellar is the signature of true sparkling craftsmanship. Year after year, we continue to offer consistent quality – establishing ourselves as the leader in the South African Sparkling Wine category and as an iconic, well awarded South African brand.

Always the trendsetters in local sparkling wine, J.C. Le Roux spearheaded the launch of exciting new styles and varietals. We were the first in South Africa to launch a red sparkling wine, La Chanson, and the first sparkling wine made solely from Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

We are passionate about bubbles and the fun they bring not only in making them but also every occasion and moment. And it’s heart-warming to know that our consumers agree!
