 South African Wine Revolution in Swartland
There's revolution happening in South Africa's wine lands where a handful of young people are turning their backs on the very practices that have made the country's wine industry such a success. Grouped together as the 'Swartland Independent Producers', who wanted to get out of the usual commercial channels of tourists and mass production, launched their rebellion in 2010 to the outside world through 'Swartland Revolution'.

Swartland Revolution, an annual fair now attracts connoisseurs from across the world. It's a swapping of each others' latest creations, of experiments and limited editions, of red stars and socialist logos and all this in a region which until recently was known for mass production of cheap wines.

Big farms with big production of big, fruity wines, all on Cape Town's doorstep were a hallmark of the region with standard locales making up the wine tours of the region. However, for these young wine producers in South Africa, the Rhone valley in southern France has been the inspiration where wines are produced as naturally as possible, not woody, not too sweet, not too strong, harvested a month early to do away with the heavy, high alcohol contents South Africa's wines are known for.
