The Revolution is over, long live the Revolution...

We love it when a plan comes together.

The founding members of the Swartland Revolution have decided that there will not be another Swartland Revolution event. It was a difficult but unanimous decision and we had to console ourselves with Callie's birthday cake and some great wines.

"We now want to focus our time and energy on the next phase, the evolution perhaps, of great things in this great region and country of ours."

We believe that last weekend’s event brought things full circle. The three tastings beautifully represented the past, the present and the future of what we started here in 2010. The Swartland Revolution was a stone cast into the ocean that is the South African wine industry and we are all satisfied with the ripples and waves it has caused.

We want to give a high five to everyone who has made these six celebrations possible. It has been pleasure getting to know the consumers and lovers of our wines. It has been a privilege to share the good food, heat waves, views and gees of our valley with you.

Hopefully you will find plenty of reasons to keep returning to the region – for Coenie and Johan’s food, for new craft beers, for G&Ts at the Royal (happy hour between 5-6pm daily) and for wine, oh, always for wine.

There will not be an event in Riebeek early November 2016, but we urge you to keep an eye on SIP, The Swartland Independent Producers… exciting times, they are a-changing and we promise the future will be anything but dull. 

Thank you for being part of the Revolution, we couldn't have done it without you,
Adi, Andrea, Chris, Callie and Eben

  2. The ability to be successful is not a gift bestowed on a few endowed people; the fact is that anybody can be successful. Don't think that highly successful people are super humans; they are like every other person on earth on earth. Only they have adopted and internalized certain principles that have enhanced their climb to the top. You can be successful if you so desire...studying this article would help you understand the principles successful people have adapted as well as internalize. However, these are not a quick fix procedures, study and practice them, let time perfect it in you and your success will appear more achievable than you thought.

  3. App Coiner Review



    He appears to be wearing what I believe to be a shoulder cape of some sort and an odd looking hat, the sort you would expect a wizard to be wearing. He appears to be carrying something on his back, a pack perhaps. I calm down and feel relieved that I will have some company at last although I hoped he would stay in the outer room for the night. I heard the door latch open, then the door is shut. I gave him time to get himself sorted out. 8 pm. I shouted out to him to ask if he is OK. Silence. No reply. I heard a match strike and soon I smelt the sweet aroma of his pipe tobacco, distinct and aromatic. I was both pleased and annoyed as at that point in time I was trying hard to give up smoking so I found the smell of tobacco repulsive. However, I shouted again. No answer.

  4. Fortunately, we were very lucky to had visited the winery on Saturday, November 14th, during the celebrations, completely by chance! We were friendly welcomed! A special moment to finish with a flourish our South Africa experience! Thank you very much for this memorable and unexpected (for all!) moments! Ana and Henrique (Brazil).

  6. I photographed a fundraising conference here recently. What a wonderful place for photos. I almost always hate being anywhere at 6am, but this breakfast event at this event venue proved an exception. The manger and his staff were extremely professional.
