fresh from the farm

Always something new and exciting up his sleeve – Adi and Kyle are now working on a new little project to keep them busy during the winter months.

Without saying too much and letting the cat out of the bag, just think herbal and fruit chenin based infusions, craft tonic and MORE BEER!

I even heard rumours of a budget to build a brewery.

First public tasting will be at the Swartland Revolution this year…

Other than that, we are building new accommodation on top of the sherry cellar

shot on the farm

Jack Parow and Valient Swart’s new song Tema van jou lied was released recently. They visited Kalmoesfontein in January to shoot some of the scenes for the video on the farm.

Can you spot views of the Swartland, Adi’s taxidermy collection and scenes on the Jakkalsfontein road? This is a beautiful production!

#SR2014

Tickets to this year’s Swartland Revolution sold out in mere hours. Currently the waiting list is over 60 people deep…

We hope you got your tickets and we will see you in Riebeek in November.

Adi will not only be presenting one of his wines along one of his ultimate ‘hero wines’ during the Expert Opinions tasting but guests will also get to try our new vermouth experiments at dinner on Friday and some Badenhorst Brews during the beer break on Saturday.
