The Swartland Revolution: This event takes place in Riebeek Kasteel on the 12th and 13th of November 2010 (this coming weekend).

A wide range of high-end wine visitors (Private Customers, Wine Trade, and the Media) will be coming to the Valley for the weekend. Proceedings on Friday include Stephane Ogier presenting a formal sit down tasting of his world class wines (at the Royal Hotel), the Reuben Reiffel’s BBQ Extravaganza (a relaxed braai) and the Kitchen Jamming Blues Band & Jukskei Jol at The Ou Pastorie. Proceedings on Saturday include Breakfast Burgers at Short Street, The Eben and Adi Show (A morning seminar tasting into the fascinating experiments of 2 maverick winemakers at the Royal Hotel), the launch of the Swartland Independent and the SA Sommelier of the Year Award, the festival feast at Bar Bar Blacksheep and the Real Men Ferment Wild street Festival at Short Street. Tickets for the Real Men Ferment Wild festival are available for purchase separately @ R50 per person.
