Help your brain at the Franschhoek Literary Festival 2016

Posted on May 10, 2016 by Nikki Friedman

Every year our fair valley plays host to the country’s most important and well-attended literary festival. Dozens of local and international authors take part in informal discussions, debates, one-on-one conversations, and talks.


Now in-between one of these many intellectual romps (and there are many, see the programme here), your brain may need some rejuvenation—in the form of what Franschhoek does best, our Cap Classique.

A study done in 2013 revealed the best news for wine lovers. Moderate consumption of champagne aka Methode Cap Classique has the potential to influence cognitive functioning, such as memory.

The researchers found that phenolic compounds in the bubbly stuff support proteins linked to storing memories and ultimately improve your spatial memory. 

And if you add this to the idea that negative ions are said to increase our levels of serotonin too (aiding energy levels as well as helping with depression and stress).

So how do these wonder molecules link up with MCC? These invisible compounds are found in environments where there are pressurised, moving liquids, such as at the ocean and at waterfalls - and when popping a bottle of Môreson Solitaire.

Take a break and enjoy a tasting with us on the farm; or come and pick up a case and enjoy it wherever you like!
