Swartland Sosiaal founder Carien Hugo Waring says: ‘We’re overjoyed at how this dream has come together with the support of the wineries.’ Hugo is well-known in wine circles for her involvement with many of the country’s top estates.

‘Moorreesburg is not only at the heart of the Swartland wine region, but also a vestige of authentic farm and family-friendly hospitality. It’s this essence reflected in the name Swartland Sosiaal.’

Moorreesburg is an easy 60-minute drive on the N7 highway from Cape Town, which makes it a perfect place to spend the long weekend when Swartland Sosiaal takes place.
