Over the past two decades the Swartland region 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 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.
The first revolution took place in the town of Riebeek Kasteel in 2010 and blew away the 120 guests. Now in its 5th year the event has grown to 450 tickets that sell out in mere hours! This year the event takes place on 7 and 8 November.
