Posts rise out of the dark brush of a vineyard near Porseleinberg in Swartland, South Africa. Literally translating as “black land,” Swartland is so named for the native renosterbos (rhinoceros bush) that turns black in the rain. Some of South Africa’s most exciting wines are being made in Swartland, thanks largely to the influence of Eben Sadie, whose wines from the region electrified critics around the world.
