With the end of the year in our sights, we’re raising our glasses of bubbly, and also, to bubbly. Not just because Constantia Uitsig’s new MCC 2013 is just as good as its sold-out predecessor, but because bubbly in and of itself is worth celebrating, any time of the year.

Natura Vista, meaning ‘Nature’s View’ is the new name of Constantia Uitsig’s renowned Constantia White Blend. It’s a subtle nod to the farm’s natural beauty and its historic name (which was ‘Constantia View’ from 1885 until 1941). Back into the present, savoring a glass of Natura Vista 2014, is itself a sight and sensory delight to behold…
