It’s time for the Swartland Revolution II

Posted by Helena Sheridan

The time has come. Soon I will be on my way to Riebeek Kasteel and set-up will commence. Then the wait will be almost over as we prepare to welcome you to the Swartland once again! We are ecstatic and blown away by the fact that we have gone from 150 guests at our first event to selling out over 250 tickets this year. We thank you for your support and promise you that we will not leave you wanting…

As you start to pack your bags and prep your livers, here are a few things we would like you to consider:
The times on Webtickets were a bit deurmekaar. Registration starts at 4pm on the famous stoep at the Royal Hotel. Please allow yourself enough time (to sit in the stop & go road works at the Riebeek turn off just outside Malmesbury; to dig into your goodie bag, packed with even more surprises than last year and to unwind & have a drink on the longest stoep south of the Limpopo river) before Quality First, our first tasting at 6pm. See the full programme here if you haven’t learned it off by heart yet.

Dinner will take place at a secret new location called Bazaar. Last year the wind was icy, so bring a warm jacket that you can stand close to the fire with. ‘Die Baardskeerdersbos Orkes’ will entertain us with some lekker tunes, so put on your dancing shoes and get ready to eat meat like never before.

In support of No-regret-Fridays and Arrive-Alive-don’t-drink-and-drive we have arranged for some local taxis to be at the BBQ venue to take you home once you have had enough great Swartland wines. Or if you are staying in Riebeek Kasteel, just walk it will make you feel very European… We have also made sure the local bar 6 Degrees will be fully stocked and open into the early hours of Saturday morning.

Also remember that we will once again auction off some hard to come by items during lunch on Saturday. These items are:
ONE CASE OUWINGERDREEKS 2009 (OLD VINE SERIES)
2 X MAGNUM 2010 MULLINEUX GRANITE SYRAH
2 X MAGNUM 2010 MULLINEUX SCHIST SYRAH
5L 2008 AA BADENHORST RED BLEND
3L 2010 AA BADENHORST WHITE BLEND
1 X 500L SAURY BARREL
A 6HL CONCRETE EGG DELIVERED TO THE SUCCESSFUL BIDDER
We will have a twitter feed up – for instant feedback and to see what you are thinking, so bring your fast typing fingers, make sure you follow us and remember the hashtag #SR2011

Please note: if you booked for friends, please send this on to them so they are in the know. If you sold your ticket to one of those desperate snoozers please let us know of the name change for registration…

I will see you in Riebeek on 11.11.11 –
Viva,

Helena
