 Young Guns - Back to Basics

About Young Guns ‘Back to Basics’

In June 2017, Wine Cellar is hosting the 7th edition of Young Guns – SA’s hottest wine tasting event that showcases the young winemakers breaking the rules and pushing the limits. With the memories of last year’s battle against the industry-shaping Old Bullets still fresh in our minds, this new generation of Young Guns is going ‘Back to Basics’. Equipped with interesting grape varieties and their bare hands and feet, this club of hunter-gatherers has produced a killer set of new wave classics. With a host of new labels, niche grape varieties, different styles and interesting personalities, Young Guns ‘Back to Basics’ is set to push the boundaries!
