icetropez, Made in France. Loved by South Africa.

From the chic shores of the French Riviera, comes a sparkling wine cocktail that’s only for the bold and fashionable. icetropez is deliciously bubbly, fresh and fruity, and guarantees its owner to be an instant VIP on their next night out.


About: icetropez launched in South Africa in 2012 and since then has taken the country by storm disrupting the perception that wine coolers are cheap, sweet and only available for consumption in bright colours. Both appealing in flavour and design, the chic packaging can be attributed to the talents and sharp eye of Christophe Pillet, a successful French designer who has worked with household brands that include Lancôme, Shiseido and Whirlpool.

Cool fact: Over recent years the popular wine cocktail has risen through the tough economic climate as a luxury indulgence enjoyed by many. The popular cocktail has gained influence with celebrities such as local rapper DA Les and Idols SA judge Somizi, snapping pics on social media with the drink.


How it’s made: icetropez launched with two 275ml variants namely, icetropez 6,5% and icetropez 0%. icetropez 6,5% is made from wine courtesy of the Domain Tropez vineyard situated in St Tropez.

Flavours: The wine is blended with the fragrant flavours of peach and infused with carbonated water. icetropez 0% is the non-alcoholic equivalent. 0% has the colour, the smell, and the taste of the original wine cocktail but the wine base has been replaced by a grape ‘mout’, juice.

Available from: The range is currently sold in selected Woolworths, Makro, Tops @ Spar, Pick n Pay liquors, Liquor City, Blue Bottle Liquor, Norman Goodfellow, Ultra Liquors stores and Tashas restaurants nationwide.
