The Swartland Revolution

The Swartland Revolution Poster

Over the past 15 years the Swartland region, (Western Cape, South Africa), has grown in stature and complexity and today there are enough contrasting wines to showcase this diversity over a weekend.

The aim of the revolutionary weekend (12-13 November 2010) is to raise general awareness of the area, and although there might be stylistic and philosophical differences in the wines to be showcased, they all share a common sense of place – as with all great wine regions of the world.

For the first forum we have invited Stefan Ogier from Domaine Michel & Stéphane Ogier from Ampuis, France. He is a world-renowned producer of fine Rhône wine.

There will also be tastings conducted by some of the local producers in formal and informal formats as well as great meals prepared by Reuben (of Reuben’s Restaurant fame) and local culinary hero Mynhardt Joubert of Bar Bar Black Sheep.
