Silverthorn is one of the handful of South African producers dedicated purely to the production of Cap Classique sparkling wine. Méthode Cap Classique, abbreviated MCC, refers to a production method equivalent to the traditional champagne method.

Silverthorn's farm is located in Robertson, Western Cape, about 150 kilometers west of Cape Town. The Robertson region and its shale soil are considered particularly suitable for Chardonnay production. In addition to Chardonnay, Silverthorn also grows Shiraz, which is used in the production of Genie. Skin contact is very short, which is why the wine color is very light red.

The farm got its name from the Karoo acacia trees growing in South Africa, whose branches grow long white thorns. The owners of Silverthorn, Karen and John Loubser, wanted to give their winery a name that represents South Africa and its unique nature.
