Grapes and Art

The winelands are as pretty as a painting; from verdant vineyards to statuesque mountains and valley vistas. Our wine valleys are living works of art, and so are the wines that come from them. Wine and art go together like crackers and cheese, and we’re not only spoilt with a wealth of natural beauty but indeed many wine estates have superlative art collections.

On the Grapes and Art excursion our Art Curator, Ilse Schermers, will personally accompany you on tours of the chosen estates. You’ll begin at Glen Carlou Wine Estate, home to the largest, privately owned contemporary art collection in the world. Then you’ll enjoy their award-winning wine while looking out over their indigenous fynbos garden. After that discover the elegant Rupert Art Museum where over 350 contemporary South African paintings, sculptures and tapestries dating from the 1940 to 1970 periods are showcased. Finish up at Tokara, and enjoy the various art exhibitions on display in and around the wine cellar and tasting room: make sure to have a peek at the ‘wine made art’ unique to the estate.

OR

Immerse yourself in the oh-so fabulous world of Delaire Graff Estate; from the breath-taking gardens to the jaw-dropping collection of South African paintings and sculptures.
