At Tokara Winery until mid-January 2018

Vintage 2017

Tokara Winery was conceived as a space which would immerse visitors in stimulating sensory experiences, offering opportunities to savour wine, fine food, olive oils and South African art in a beautiful setting. As you walk through the parking area you smell the indigenous garden; before entering the building you pass examples of the vines they cultivate. Marco Cianfanelli's stainless steel sculpture Mind's vine carries words about the experience of taste, epicurean mythology, wine-making, terroir and history. Inside the winery, William Kentridge's tapestries (woven by Marguerite Stephens) are on display in the restaurant, while works by Egon Tania, Willem Strydom, Geoffrey Armstrong and Lyndi Sales complement the Wine Tasting Room.

For 10 years, Tokara launched its new vintages with an annual exhibition of paintings painted in wine, called Wine Made Art (some are hanging in the corridor).

This year, the exhibition promotes work by artists who don't paint in wine, but whose work is associated with wine, landscape, nature or science.

Lisa Strachan was taken into Tokara's vineyards by the estate's viticulturalist, Aidan Morton, to find some of her source material for her finely-observed watercolours.

Walter Oltmann marvels at the beauty of the moth, a pollinator, and other insects inspire his suit images. His weaving is in wire, tracing nature with its threads.

Mishkaah Amien cuts the finest patterns by hand with a cutting knife, as if dissecting designs of molecules, ripples of sound or taste, and as her title says: Beyond the visible.

Nicolas Hales looks beyond the visible into structures beneath what we see and into the spaces we inhabit. He is interested in light waves and energy fields. In Alchemy no 1 a container floats like an ancient wine amphora.

Desmond Mnyila masks views of landscape: cultivated and pristine. Daniel Mark Nel's paintings draw us into leafy glades, while Lucas Bambo's narrative linocuts describe the practice of cultivating and plead with humans to care for our natural resources, especially water.
