South African wine
It's being called the Swartland Revolution. In an area of fertile plains and rolling hills an hour north of Cape Town, pioneering viticulturalists are producing some of South Africa’s most sought-after wines. Their secret ingredient? Grapes from decades-old vines abandoned in the post-apartheid era—when farmers in more developed wine-making regions, like Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, tore out old plants and replaced them with popular varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
